Overview


One of the most colorful cities in the world, Rome is exquisite material for photographs; its bustling streets and magnificent antiquities present spectacular panoramas. Attilio Boccazzi-Varotto has used a rotating camera to produce the unique large-format and multiple-page images—fifty-eight in all—that set this book and the previous volumes in the series, New York 360° and Venice 360°, apart from other volumes of photographs.
        In gorgeous detail, Rome 360° records the ruins, churches, palazzos, aerial cityscapes, and fountains of this awesome city. Through Boccazzi-Varotto's evocative images, we can reconstruct and marvel at the city's magisterial past: The Colosseum's might is undiminished by its crumbling walls; the Appian Way still stretches, unmarred by the centuries, into the horizon; the Spanish Steps possess the same inspirational power they did in more recent times, when Keats wrote there. The magic of these pictures is fully realized by their incredible presentation. The Trevi Fountain panorama covers six stunning pages, measuring a full six and a half feet; the heart of ancient Rome—Piazza Venezia, the Altar of the Fatherland, the Ara Caeli, the Capitol, and the Teatrum Marcelli—is pictured across a four-page spread; and Piazza San Pietro is displayed, over four pages, during a Papal benediction.
        Journey through Rome while turning these pages: see the Pantheon, the Tiber Bridge, St. Peter's Basilica, Constantine's Arch, the Capitol, Trajan's Market, and more. Explanatory captions in the back of the book identify thelandmarks pictured and provide an artistic and historical context. Rome 360° is a glorious window on this city's incomparable mystery.
