Only a renaissance man could have described this glorious city in its heyday. And only Carlo Levi, writer, painter, politician and one of the last centurya s most celebrated talents, could depict Rome at the height of its optimism and vitality after World War II. In Fleeting Rome, the era of post war a La Dolce Vitaa is brought magnificently to life in the daily bustle of Romea s street traders, housewives and students at work and play, the colourful festivities of Ferragosto and San Giovanni, the little theatre of Pulcinella al Pincio; all vibrant sights and sounds of this ancient, yet vital city.

Carlo Levi (1902--1972), 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 La Orologio (1950), Le parole sono pietre (1955), Le mille patrie, Lo specchio and Scritti di critica da arte. From 1963 to 1972 he was Senator of the Republic.
