Simen Ekern

Rome. Contemporary Stories From An Eternal City

Roma. Nye fascister, røde terrorister og drømmen om det søte liv

Rome is not only rich in ancient history, but also a modern metropolis with a present and recent past which is by turns bloody, chaotic and seductive. The author Simen Ekern brings his readers along on a tour at breakneck speed through the streets of Rome, from the post-war years to the present day. The book is interested in particular in the militant movements on the extreme left and also in the fascism that never quite disappeared. This awardwinning book on Roma is a different kind of narrative about a very special city.
