Beschreibung

In this complex love affair with Rome, Carlo Levi explores the streets of the city that was for many years his home: a city at once fleeting and eternal, noble and plebeian, a city of dreams and illusions. Through the daily bustle of Rome' s street traders, housewives and students, the children at the little theatre of Pulcinella al Pincio, the men in the street café s and the exuberant festivities of Ferragosto, San Giovanni and Befana, Levi brings magnificently to life Rome in the post war and "Dolce Vita eras. "Fleeting Rome vividly evokes the sounds of the city, its odours, its beauty and the aspirations of its people.

Portrait

Carlo Levi (1902--1975), writer, painter and politician, was one of the great Italian talents of the twentieth century. He was interned in the South of Italy as an anti--fascist during the Second World War, where he wrote his masterpiece, Cristo si e fermato a Eboli (Christ stopped at Eboli). The work was subsequently turned into a film and became recognized as one of the great works of twentieth century literature. Subsequent works have included a wide range of fiction and non--fiction, including L'Orologio,(1950) Le parole sono pietre (1955), Le mille patrie, Lo specchio and Scritti di critica d'arte. From 1963 to 1972 he was a Senator of the Republic.
