Description

The unique aspects of the ``Eternal City'' are explored by leading experts in this in-depth study. Divided into two parts, Part One looks at the historical setting of modern Rome, the negative image of Rome throughout Italy and the economic dependence of Rome on its existence as a highly centralized focal point of all cultural and commercial activity. Part Two explores the expansion and decentralization of Rome from the interwar period to today; details the social geography of the city; and highlights contemporary and future problems.
