Summary
"Rome, golden, eternally powerful, glorious, world-dominating Rome, mistress of cities, city of cities, the fortunate, regal, holy city, the city of all, seat of empire and glory." In this single sentence, Ernst Kantorowicz summed up in 1927 the eulogies Rome attracted in Antiquity and the Middle Ages. The "eternal city" continues to fascinate today with its extremes and contradictions. It has accumulated multiple layers of history and remains one of the central points of reference for literary and intellectual reflection. The metropolis attracts masses of visitors who want to participate in the glorious past. Usually they take but cursory note of the contemporary rifts in in the city. History Takes Place: Rome studies the urban design of Rome and discusses challenges of monument preservation and urban heritage. Contributions by young scholars from different disciplines-history, art history, archaeology, cultural and social sciences, as well as architecture and urban planning-open up a new perspective on modern history of the city and current urban developments.
