landmark, the palazzo Barberini, say, or piazza Colonna, and
wonder who created it? Why? What was their story? This fascinating
book provides the answer. At once a history and a guide, sumptuous
and authoritative, it divides Rome into the districts dominated
by the noble clans who in turn became fabulously rich when one
of their members was made Pope: the Cenci, Colonna, della Rovere,
Farnese, Borghese, Barberini and others. In each case Anthony
Majanlahti tells the family story, powerful, bloody and vivid,
with all the scandals and intrigues and scrabbling for power,
the building of palazzi and piazza and churches, as well as
relationships with artists like Bernini and Michelangelo. An
itinerary with maps and engravings allows readers to walk round
the area, with a detailed guide to buildings, streets, gardens
and special features.
