Rome is famous for its buildings and architecture, but just who built its noted and beautiful structures? This distinctive accountÂ—part history and part travel guideÂ—explores the families and individuals who built Rome from the ground up. Each of the districts dominated by the fabulously rich families of the PopesÂ—including the Colonna, della Rovere, Farnese, Borghese, Barberini and othersÂ—are explored and paired with a vivid account of the familyâ€™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.
