Rome is a city built for display and grandeur. For centuries it has been a place of pilgrimage for artists and art-lovers, yet many of its greatest treasures remain unseen by the public. This book sets out to penetrate the hidden world of Rome's historic interiors, and to reveal a side to the city which has been previously unexplored, while aiming to offer fresh perspectives on the less-familiar side of famous buildings. The span of styles presented ranges from the High Renaissance reception rooms of the Palazzo Farnese, to the Art Deco mosaics of Mussolini's Foro Italico. It surveys Vatican apartments, palaces and villas, embassies, clubs and private institutions.
