Congratuations to Emeritus Professor Ron Ridley for the publication of three books in 2017:
Rome, Twenty-nine Centuries, A Chronological Guide (Rome: Gangemi, 2017) -- a new kind of guide to Rome, organised by century rather than by district;
The Prince of Antiquarians: Francesco de Ficoroni (Rome, Quasar, 2017), a biography of Ficoroni (1662-1747), a central figure in the antiquarian life of Europe of his age, to be launched in Rome shortly;
