Special offer: € 99,00 NOW € 25,00 The complete 135 views of Rome Piranesi produced as etchings are compiled in this breathtaking large-format title. The high-quality reproductions of the original prints create an inimitable image of Rome. Once sought-for souvenirs and collectibles the vedutes are now also reflecting Piranesi's time, thereby not only allowing a journey to Rome but also into his era. “There are many good reasons why it is time for a complete and large edition of the Vedute di Roma by Giambattista Piranesi. The Mythical narrative that his views of the Eternal City compose contributed to the Resorgimento, the rebirth of Italy as an independent nation.“ ( Gijs Wallis de Vries). This large format size book on Piranesi etchings follows the first French Edition of 1803. The series is produced directly from a complete original Piranesi catalogue. The book includes full reproductions of all the 135 etchings of the 'Vedute di Roma' made by Giambattista Piranesi plus 2 etchings made by his son Francesco.
