Description THE FIVE OF US IN ROME is the delightful story told by a young girl who arrives in Rome in 1892 almost 5 years old and who leaves in 1896 as a 9-year old. Her father is an art painter who rents an atelier with family living quarters in the Villa Strohl-Fern, a mansion full with other artists, situated in a lush park close to Villa Borghese and the Academies of Art – in this period still on the outskirts of Rome. The story received the prize of the best book for girls in 1928 in Holland. Given the amassed artistic talent at the Villa Strohl-Fern and its particular role in art history Tine’s book has become a remarkable historical document as well.
