Exploring Rome is concerned with those Italian, French, and English eighteenth-century artists, architects, collectors, patrons, and antiquarians who created and spread a new vision of antiquity that led to the establishment of neoclassism. The critical figure in this activity was the etcher and architect Giovanni Battista Piranesi, who settled in Rome in 1740. The book reflects the CCA’s interest in the movement of ideas between architecture and other fields, between theoretical explorations and practical applications, and between different countries and cultures.
