Description

The greatest originality in Roman art can be found in its architectural revolution which, without neglecting the attractive exterior solutions, developed a genuinely spatial conception of vast interiors, thereby conceiving a spatial architecture as opposed to the plastic architecture of the Greeks. In this volume from a new generation of books about the history of art for the new digital culture media, we will address the material and tectonic foundations of the Roman architectural revolution, and we will explore the versatility that allows it to display a wide typological diversity with an effective functional conception that Romanizes the scenery of the empire as an instrument of civilization and proclaims Roman rule in the context of urban life.
