Fleeting Rome: In Search of la Dolce Vita

Fleeting Rome: In Search of la Dolce Vita By Carlo Levi
2005 | 318 Pages | ISBN: 0470871849 | PDF | 3 MB


Only a renaissance man could have described this glorious city in its heyday. And only Carlo Levi, writer, painter, politician and one of the last century's most celebrated talents, could depict Rome at the height of its optimism and vitality after World War II. In Fleeting Rome, the era of post war 'La Dolce Vita' is brought magnificently to life in the daily bustle of Rome's street traders, housewives and students at work and play, the colourful festivities of Ferragosto and San Giovanni, the little theatre of Pulcinella al Pincio; all vibrant sights and sounds of this ancient, yet vital city.
