  • James Ackerman and Kathleen Weil Garris conduct this guided tour of Rome combining aspects of an art history lecture with an understanding of past and present everyday life. As they explain, the only way back into the past is through the present. Engravings of Rome at the time of the Renaissance gives an orientation to present day Rome. Living within so many examples of past glory, the authors conclude, "Romans are still manufacturing their future out of their past, just as they did in the Renaissance."
