Inhaltsangabe: This book is a photographic record of a series of journeys made along five of the ancient Roman roads of Italy ? the Via Appia, which extended from Rome to the great port of Brindisi, thus linking the city with the Orient; Via Cassia to Siena; Via Flaminia to Bologna; Via Aurelia to San Remo; Via Aemelia from Parma to Rimini (where it joined the Via Flaminia).
These routes offer a natural framework to a record of the varied regions of Italy and how they have evolved over two thousand years - and an insight into the fusion of old and new that gives Italy its distinctive character. The journeys are rich in evocative contrasts, with the most modern expressions of 21st-century life played out against ancient backdrops.
John Heseltine's romantic black and white photographs will appeal to all lovers of Italy.
Each beautifully expressive image is accompanied by 60-or-so words of description ... you'll want to revisit the photographs again and again ( Italia)
The 80 photographs have a timeless feel that alludes to a sense of history juxtaposed with evidence of modern-day society. For anyone interested in Italy this is an inspiring look at the country ( Amateur Photographer)
... impossible not to be thoroughly enchanted by the lyrical depth and haunting atmosphere of these images. Heseltine has entirely succeeded in rendering the elusive spirit of place. A beautiful creation ( Montage)
