Tour BolognaBologna (Footprint Pocket Handbooks S.) Tour Bologna. The second edition of our popular mini guide to help you get the best out of Bologna. Covering the city itself, it looks outside the city to the popular excursions: the Appenine villages, Parma, Modena, Ferrara, Imola, Ravenna and Rimini. With streets like embroidered cloth, threaded with the arches of continuous colonnades, the heart of Bolgona is a giant cloister. The city is littered with breathtaking monuments and masterpieces all of which are readily accessible. If this were not mouth-watering enough Bologna is the food capital of Italy and renowed for its fast cars.

The Malatesta of Rimini and the Papal StateThe Malatesta of Rimini and the Papal State A detailed history, from the mid-thirteenth to the early sixteenth century, of an Italian state, Rimini, and its ruling family, the Malatesta. The Malatesta are best known, through the works of Jacob Burckhardt, John Addington Symonds and others, for their colourful contribution to the court life and culture of renaissance Italy. There are other sides to their history of at least comparable importance. By their representative status, as princes of middle rank, and by their unusually long tenure of power, the Malatesta are among the families most typical in all its stages of Italy's Age of Despots: in their acquisition and exercise of authority, their political career and personality, in the circumstances of their fall. At the same time, by their position as papal subjects, in Romagna and the March of Ancona, their progress is inseparable from the parallel history of government in the Papal State, first effectively founded in the same century as Maltesta rule and consolidated, two hundred years later, by the destruction of the Malatesta and other tyrants of central Italy. It is the purpose of this book to investigate in detail the origin, development and character of Maltesta government and the causes of its overthrow, against the background of changing relations between popes and despots, dynastic and papal signoria.
