With the great Miroslav Sasek in the »Eternal City«: From the traces of antiquity – the Roman Forum, Pantheon, Colosseum, the Emperors – to the colorful life in Rome in the 1960s with its baristas and the residents happily rattling by on their Vespas. Sasek pays a visit to the most Roman Romans in Trastevere, but of course also to St. Peter's Basilica, the Fontana di Trevi at night and the crowded Sistine Chapel. He introduces theology students from all over the world and elegant carabinieri, enthusiastic spaghetti eaters and sullen wine merchants. We see white laundry drying against a bright blue sky, palm trees on rooftop terraces, oranges in backyards, and pyramids made out of Chianti bottles... All roads lead to Rome, but this book is undoubtedly one of the most enjoyable ways to explore the legendary city. Originally published in 1960, Rom is a loving facsimile edition of the original, augmented with an appendix containing information and dates about Rome today.

A wonderful store with attention to detail. Each part is carefully selected, making the shop a voyage of discovery. The individual pillows have been the best gift for birth, baptism or birthday for years, and have always accompanied my godchildren. A big recommendation for everyone who is looking for high-quality, special things. (Translated)

Wonderful shop with handpicked products. Pillows and other little things are made by hand by the boss. That has to be supported. We're always very happy to be there. (Translated)
