This book on the Eternal City is an invitation to the theatre and, just like a play, is made up of a Prologue, five Acts and an Epilogue.
In the rest of the Lazio region as well as in Italy and Europe, the sights to behold are villas, palaces, castles and aristocratic residences. In Rome, they are actual performances. In different periods, different (papal, noble or middle-class) impresarios endeavoured to engage the brightest stars of their times: classical deities, mythological characters, heroes and heroines.
