This volume is a representative sampling of the contemporary scholarship on Piranesi, with each essay scrutinizing a particular aspect of his oeuvre. By engaging with material found in eighteenth-century manuscripts and printed materials, as well as texts and images Piranesi produced, the nine esteemed contributors add the expanding, glittering mosaic of Piranesi's life and work. As perhaps the most crucial intermediary between Rome and the modern era, ""Piranesi"" appeals to many audiences, including archaeologists, architects, art and architectural historians, classicists, and historians of the graphic arts and book design.
