Mensagem:  It seems to me that the author wants to show that Rome was a vibrant, living entity....the center of civilization (Egypt being a close second)...with a pulse, movement, growing, controlling, manipulating. If you went to Rome for the first time after living in a small town or city you would be amazed by the vibrance and hustle-bustle of the great metropolis. Imagine yourself as a person from a village on the Tocantins river flying to São Paulo or Rio for the first time. That's how many historians feel about ancient Rome...she was a proud, arrogant city and fell into decay because of that same arrogance.
