Covering the entire history of the city of Rome, from the Iron Age village to the modern metropolis, it is the first book to take the long view of the Eternal City as an urban organism.Three thousand years and counting, Rome prospered almost from the beginning on self-referencing, completing the daily concerns of urban management and planning by projecting its own past onto the city of the moment.It is a study of the urban, the process by which Rome’s people and leaders, both as guardians of its illustrious past and agents of its vast power, shaped and conditioned its urban fabric through the manipulation of geography and the organization of space; planning of infrastructure; designing and presiding over the making of myths, rituals, and staging; control of the city; planning of the city’s infrastructure; designing and presiding over the making of myths, rituals, and staging.
