The Families Who Made Rome: A History and a Guide by Anthony Majanlahti

I highly recommend this book to anyone visiting Rome and who wants to experience something beyond the standard package of sites. My daughter and I spent three consecutive winter holidays in Rome and used this book as our principal guide. The recommended itineraries are focused the buildings the leading families of Rome contributed to the city. Their histories make interesting reading - all of which competed to become Pope. The Rome we see today is dominated by the family crests of the Barberini, della Rovere, Colonna, etc - this book will enhance your appreciation of the eternal city. Most important from my perspective, I discovered a Rome without tourists and full of surprises.

The Families who made Rome - A History and a Guide

Anthony Majanlahti. How often does a visitor to Rome drift towards some landmark - the palazzo Barberini, say, or piazza Colonna - and wonder who created it? What was their story? This fascinating book provides the answers. It is at once a history and a guide, sumptuous and authoritative, with forty maps and sixty black and white illustrations. The guide divides Rome into the districts dominated by the fabulously rich families of the Popes- the Colonna, della Rovere, Farnese, Borghese, Barberini and others. In each case we learn their story - powerful, bloody and vivid - with all the scandals and intrigues as well as their relationships with artists like Bernini and Michelangelo.
