City Speller: Rome
(50 items available)
Designed by Alessio D'Ellena, this book compiles a selection of points of interest in Rome. The idea comes from a consideration of the places that make a city what it is, not just the tourist hotspots, distinguishing it from the routes featured in more traditional guides. It is places such as these that take a leading role in this guide: places that help form the humus that gives a city its identity, and mix with the institutional facade, restoring the true syncretism possessed by every real place. There is no real reason why a particular monument or building is featured in the guide: what really matters is that those featured tells us something about the city. The only requirement that needs to be met is that the structure is part of the city itself.
