  • Abstract

    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.
