Editorial Reviews


"A very interesting book on the geology of Rome and how that geology has strongly influenced the city's geography, history, economics, and culture since its earliest settlement.", Choice

"The writing in this joint Italian-American volume is delightfully clear, and the book is full of helpful illustrations."---Ron Smith, Georgia Review

"This is a book of delights. A volcanologist and two geologists unpick the fabric of Rome, from its roots of silts and gravels overlain by volcanic flows to the summits of the seven hills."---Maggie McDonald, New Scientist

"This is a truly unusual book of great interest to amateur geologists, historians, and travelers.", Library Journal

"This fascinating and easy-to-read guidebook shows how the geography and geology of Rome allowed it to grow into the great center of civilization that it became. . . . This book is for travelers and readers interested in both history and geology.", Science News

"Rome we know as a museum of empires and faiths, architecture and art collections: this fascinating little book shows how it may be a museum of the earth as well."---Greg Woolf, Times Literary Supplement

"Now here's a tourist guide to Rome with a difference. . . .This isn't just a guide. The authors have also set out to awaken people to Rome's geological framework in the hope of making the city itself more sustainable."---Sarah Barnett, Geographical Magazine

"A detailed description."---Ingrid Rowland, New York Review of Books


"Part guidebook, part scholarly resource, all fascinating story, The Seven Hills of Rome weaves together the complex geology and history of Rome's unique locale. The book is throughout a revelation―one that not only illuminates the study of the city's past, but nurtures an appreciation of its present and a concern for its future."―Susan E. Alcock, University of Michigan
