PONT. MAX.: Summer Sojourns in the Rome of the Popes is an idyllic summertime vacation in the Eternal City - a leisurely stroll down its narrow, rustic, yellow ochre lanes back through the centuries to the ages of the Italian Renaissance and Catholic Reformation when Michelangelo, Raphael, and Bernini all labored in the employ of the popes, who left their indelible mark on the city on the Tiber, while inventing the modern capital. It's a tourist's guidebook, a culinary adventure, a cool twilight sip of Frascati in the piazza with the chitarrista, and above all else, a pedestrian history, entered through the back door, of the art, architecture, and men of genius - sinners and saints, pontiffs and princes - that defined an age.
