The catalogue for the exhibition "Valentino a Roma" held at the Ara Pacis Museum in Rome in 2007. Featuring splendid studio portraits of all the dresses exhibited (as well as several detail shots), the catalogue is a veritable journey through the history of the Italian maestro's illustrious career. Texts in English and Italian include captions describing the dresses (indicating, where relevant, which stars wore them and on what occasions) as well as essays by the show's curators Patrick Kinmonth and Antonio Monfreda, Mayor of Rome Walter Veltroni, "Vanity Fair's" Matt Tyrnauer, and the "International Herald Tribune's" Suzy Menkes.
