SO's son is headed to Rome for next semester and wants reccos for books to read. I'm drawing a blank except for Christ Stopped at Eboli and The Pillars of Hercules (which wasn't about Italy per se, but rather the Mediterranean). Isn't there some Michener or other classic history of Rome?
What Are Some Seminal Books about Italy, Fiction or Nonfiction?
