Description

A quartet of essays on great European cities from the groundbreaking thinker Georg Simmel

These brilliant essays, from one of Germany's greatest and most influential thinkers, are beautifully written and highly readable portraits of three Italian cities: Rome, Venice and Florence. Simmel saw the city as a work of art in itself, and taken together these pieces act as a powerful suite expounding that notion.

A seminal work of psycho-geography, this collection has never been published together in English before.
