The history of Italian architecture in the second half of the 1500s: a historical-geographical itinerary, analyzed through the most important works.

[The second half of the 1500s. History of Italian Architecture] After the heroic experimentation of the first decades of the 1500s, Italian architecture seems to turn to development of new typologies – just consider the Roman Gesù Church by Vignola and Giacomo della Porta, the Uffizi of Vasari, the Farnesi palaces of Vignola, the villas of Palladio – of complex relations between buildings and urban space, structures and infrastructures required for the life of the city: aqueducts, streets, sewers, bridges and fountains.
Architects remained linked to the places where they worked, and architecture became a fully urban phenomenon, conceived as the realization of a new, complex idea of the city. The volume proceeds not through biographies of the most famous architects, but through a historical-geographical approach, analyzing particularly important works and investigating often overlooked themes.
