A practical spotter's guide to counterfeits in Italian coins, banknotes, and electronic money, this large slipcased volume is rather more valuable to most of us as a visual chronicle of some of the oldest and most elegant examples of engraved and printed currency to be found anywhere. It is the catalogue for a 2008 exhibit in Rome presented in cooperation with the Bank of Italy, the Superintendence for Archaeological Heritage of Rome and for Tuscany, and Rome's government printing office, tracing the evolution of counterfeiting over 2500 years, from the Greco-Roman period to the present.
