9788874489947: Guide to Underground Rome: From Cloaca Massima to Domus Aurea, The Most Fascinating Underground Sites of the Capital

A brief glance at the title of this book immediately brings one question to mind: Is it really possible that so much beauty and such an immense number of unexplored spaces could be hiding underneath Rome? A perfectly legitimate question, since so few people have had the opportunity that Carlo Pavia has to experience these sensations which he has so admirably been able to translate into words and images.

Placing himself in his readers' shoes, his language clear and charming, Pavia takes them practically by the hand down into the bowels of the city, with descriptions that illuminate without being too technical. The result is a book suitable for everyone, and the essential vademecum for those wishing to undertake a visit to the largest hidden museum in the world: Underground Rome.

Written in English and Italian.

Book Description Gangemi, 2002. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Neuf. Edition originale. A brief glance at the title of this book ­ "Guide to Underground Rome" ­ immediately brings one question to mind: Is it really possible that so much beauty and such an immense number of unexplored spaces could be hiding underneath Rome? A perfectly legitimate question, since so few people have had the opportunity that Carlo Pavia has to experience these sensations which he has so admirably been able to translate into words and images. Placing himself in his readers' shoes, his language clear and charming, he takes them practically by the hand down into the bowels of the city, with descriptions that illuminate without being too technical. The result is a book suitable for everyone, and the essential vademecum for those wishing to undertake a visit to the largest hidden museum in the world ­ Underground Rome. Dopo aver dato una seppur veloce occhiata al libro "Guida dei sotterranei di Roma" una domanda nasce immediata: "È mai possibile che sotto Roma si nasconda cotanta bellezza e soprattutto tale immane quantità di ambienti nascosti? ". È una domanda più che lecita perché pochissime persone hanno avuto la possibilità di gustare tutte quelle sensazioni che Carlo Pavia ha saputo cosí mirabilmente portare in immagini e testi. Egli, l'autore, si è immedesimato nel lettore e lo accompagna, quasi per mano, nelle viscere della terra romana utilizzando un linguaggio chiaro ed accattivante ed una descrizione dei luoghi senza peccare di estrema professionalità. Ne risulta un libro adatto a tutti e l'essenziale vademecum per chi volesse intraprendere la visita del più grande museo nascosto del mondo, Roma sotterranea. Fabien Paris da "Profilo di un autore".
