9abf83521a7b73d459eb63db1da8dfbbOn show works of the great eighteenth century Venetian artist Giambattista Piranesi as presentation of many of his arts: architect, antiquarian, archaeologist, engraver, designer and taste creator.
Along with the 250 original prints there are reproductions of many of the objects projected and never created by G. Piranesi such as a vase, a candelabrum, a teapot, a chair, two tripods, an altar and a marvellous chimney.
There will also be the 3d simulation of “Carceri d’Invenzione”, a model made by De Lucchi of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Priorato in Rome (the only construction Piranesi created in his life) and 3D views of Rome by Gabriele Basilico, that are the photographer’s tribute to the great master.
