Campagna Romana: The Countryside of Ancient Rome
by Joel Sternfeld
Publisher's Description
"The countryside bordering Rome along the ruins of the Claudian Aqueduct is a photographer's--and painter's--paradise. . . . Sternfeld's magnificent color photographs capture poignant juxtapositions of the past and the present: tombs, villas, arches--the shards of ancient civilization--coexisting with apartment houses, malls, and the blight of the modern city. Much of the area that Sternfeld documents has been proposed as a large archaeological park, but unless legislation is enacted immediately, what little remains of the historic Campagna will be forever lost."--the publisher.
