Description

This copiously illustrated lecture on the origins of the planned city raises fundamental issues about the growth from communal living in the medieval city to the zoning of artisans and managers in the Italian Renaissance. The city emerges as a symbol of the Absolute State in the circulating plan of Baroque Rome, foreshadowing the traffic flows and social barriers of modern cities.
