The prestigious Prix de Rome offered the opportunity for young students of architecture to examine the ancient monuments of Italy, many of which were being rediscovered during the 18th and 19th centuries. After three introductory essays this beautiful volume brings together 150 drawings produced by winners of the prize, which record the buildings in a better state of preservation than we can see today as well as presenting cutaway views and proposing reconstructions of their original appearance.
