Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of Italy, then pay attention....

It is not an easy job to draw the border between the history of Italy and the history of Rome. In so many places, the two political and geographical entities collide. They wouldn’t be possible without each other, but they each have their own story. 

Rome’s history is only a small fragment of Italy’s history. Although it is just a city, Rome was the birthplace of the republic, a great empire, and notable philosophers, poets, and artists. But on a larger scale, Rome expanded its borders, spreading not only through Italy, but also through the whole known world. In that context, Rome ceased being only a city; it also became a universal imperial symbol and the pride of Italy.

In History of Italy: A Captivating Guide to Italian History, Starting from the First Settlements through the Middle Ages to the Modern Period, you will discover topics such as:

  • The Bronze Age in Italy and the Early Settlements
  • Iron Age and Pre-Roman Italy
  • Italy in the Roman Period
  • Barbarian and Byzantine Italy
  • The Kingdom of the Lombards and the Emergence of the Papal States
  • Italy’s Place in the Holy Roman Empire
  • Italy’s Renaissance
  • The Modern History of Italy
  • And much, much more!
