-Giotto di Bondone, Renaissance Painter
Walk the streets of the eternal city with a modern traveler through ancient ruins. Each verse of Chasing Apollo is a step through, under and around the paths of Rome. Like photographs or paintings, sculpted with words to share the experience of a week-long holiday.
As well as the main journalistic poem of thoughts, emotions and experiences, you'll find a number of stray daydreams and passing fancies inspired by the same visit to Rome during warm February days. A unique kind of travel writing, this book is a project of the heart from one traveler to those who want to walk the paths of memory with company, until it can be walked again in reality.
