They say that Rome wasn’t built in a day – and when you peer back in to the pages of this astonishing city, you’ll see why.
Rome: The Golden Centuries
examines the intricate tapestry of art, culture, architecture and religion that made this city such an intense focus of interest. The small town of Romulus became the capital of an empire, the seat of the Pope; the cradle in which the Renaissance and the Baroque were born.
