William Klein


In 1956,William Klein, who had recently published his now classic Life is Good & Good for You in New York, arrived in Rome to assist Federico Fellini on his film’Nights of Cabiria’. As filming was delayed, Klein instead strolled around the city with Fellini, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alberto Moravia, and other avant-garde Italian writers and artists serving as his guides. It was on these walks that Rome, a radical and brilliant visual diary of the city, was born. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rome’s release, Thames & Hudson is pleased to publish a revised edition. Now redesigned to encompass two volumes in a special slipcase, and featuring never-before-seen fashion pictures and updated text by the photographer, this new edition offers audiences another chance to celebrate this groundbreaking work.
