Rome: In Flight over the Eternal City and Latium by Antonio Attini, Marcello Bertinetti
A repository of 3,000 years of accumulated history, art, and culture, Rome is like no other city in the world. This portfolio of panoramas spotlights the architecture and art that have earned Rome the designation of a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Taken from a variety of birds-eye perspectives, the images in this volume depict the range of architecture-from the world-renowned monuments of ancient Rome, such as the Colosseum, the Forum, the Pantheon, and the Arch of Constantine to the opulent dwellings, majestic squares, and obelisks that represent the architecture of the Renaissance. The grandeur of the Vatican, the lush hillsides, opulent villas, and picturesque lakes such as Bracciano of the Latium region are conveyed as well. With photographers Antonio Attini and Marcello Bertinetti as guides, readers will be taken on an unforgettable aerial adventure over the City of the Seven Hills.
Antonio Attini’s photography has appeared in America from the Air and Chicago from the Air, both published by White Star. Marcello Bertinetti worked for many of the foremost periodicals in Italy before founding White Star Publishers. His photography appears in Egypt Flying High (White Star) among other publications.
