2016 1-4955-0504-9
This is the first comprehensive study, translated into English, of the written repertoire, both published and un-published, of architect Luigi Vanvitelli and his approach to restoration and renewal in antiquities preservation. Vanvitelli’s remarkable written record covers the intellectual, theoretical and ideological etymology of scholars in Eighteenth-century Europe with regard to the ‘restoration’ and preservation process.
