The world contains a terrific, kaleidoscopic mixture of cultures that dazzle us, but we should never forget to pay homage to our own heritage. Rome, the once-upon-a-time capital of the known world, remains, for me, the head and heart of a western civilization, that not only encompasses Europe, but the Americas too. This civilization, for all its impure faults, has reached the pinnacles of art, architecture, music and poetry.
