The Renaissance "arose within a maelstrom of enormously potent
political, economic, and social change," writes Angela K. Nickerson in A
Journey into Michelangelo's Rome, Roaring Forties Press' newest addition to
their ArtPlace Series. "In Italy, the winds of change transformed a
collection of warring principalities and city-states into a continent's
mercantile and cultural powerhouse." Within that whirlwind, Michelangelo and
his revolutionary talent helped shape Renaissance Rome and continues to
haunt the Rome of today. Nickerson, an international tour guide who is
married to a Roman, conveys a sense of the power Michelangelo's spirit still
holds over locals and tourists today...
Nickerson's book seamlessly interweaves the genres of biography,
art history, and travelogue into a convenient...portable package.
