Guglielmo Ferrero (1871–1942)

Ferrero, Guglielmo. An Italian historian, born at Portici, in 1872; died in 1942. He wrote the brilliant works: ‘The Greatness and Decline of Rome’ (1902–1907), and ‘Characters and Events of Roman History’ (1908). This work, a departure in historical writing, consists of a series of studies of ancient Rome’s great men and women, and of critical moments and events in Roman history. He, in 1908, delivered a course of lectures in the United States. He also wrote ‘Between Two Worlds’ (1913); ‘Ancient Rome and Modern America’ (1914). (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
