Rome is famous for its buildings and architecture, but just who built its noted and beautiful structures? This distinctive account—part history and part travel guide—explores the families and individuals who built Rome from the ground up. Each of the districts dominated by the fabulously rich families of the Popes—including the Colonna, della Rovere, Farnese, Borghese, Barberini and others—are explored and paired with a vivid account of the family’s history, including their scandals and intrigues as well as their relationships with artists like Bernini and Michelangelo. An itinerary with maps and engravings provides a detailed guide to each family's monuments. Famous sites such as the Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, and St. Peter's Cathedral take on new significance as the history of the Roman nobles who placed their stamp on the city is unveiled.

Anthony Majanlahti was born in Montreal, Canada, and studied at the University of Toronto: his doctoral research is on the English community in Rome during the Renaissance. He has worked in many areas - as a producer of fashion shows, and a stockbroker's apprentice - and is presently a fellow of the British School at Rome. He divides his time between Rome, London and Toronto.
