A wonderful companion on my recent trip to Rome.

Morton brings the city to life as he tells the stories of those who made Rome from its Etruscan beginnings through the Rome of the erepublic and the imperial age of the Caesars through the Renaissance to the uniting of Italy under Graibald and how Mussolini marched on Rome to seize power in more recent times.

And of course, the backdrop is the rise, fall and rise again of the Papacy and the Catholic Church.
