This volume, number 13 in the Melbourne Art Journal series, brings together nine scholars who each explore an aspect of the art and architecture of Rome situated within the topography-or map-of Rome in the Renaissance and Early Modern periods, with several studies focusing on the eighteenth century. These are studies of sight and site: about how the appearance of different regions or aspects of the city intersect with complex systems of political, economic, social and artistic institutions and customs.
