An ardent Midwesterner transplanted to Parma, where she has lived for decades, Wallis Wilde-Menozzi returns to her "Rome Years" in this soulful meditation on the people, places, ruins, statues and many layers of the Eternal City. She's particularly astute on art (with two chapters on Carravaggio and one on Michelangelo), but it is her ability to conjure the life of the city that sets the book apart. You'll want to linger in the atmospheric Arco degli Acetar, where once upon a time she rented a room.
