Architectural Temperance : Spain and Rome, 1700-1759 Hardback
by Victor (School of Architecture and Design, New York Institute of Technology and Department of Deupi
Part of the Routledge Research in Architecture series
Architectural Temperance examines relations between Bourbon Spain and papal Rome (1700-1759) through the lens of cultural politics.
With a focus on key Spanish architects sent to study in Rome by the Bourbon Kings, the book also discusses the establishment of a program of architectural education at the newly founded Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid.
Victor Deupi explores why a powerful nation like Spain would temper its own building traditions with the more cosmopolitan trends associated with Rome; often at the expense of its own national and regional traditions.
Through the inclusion of previously unpublished documents and images that shed light on the theoretical debates which shaped eighteenth-century architecture in Rome and Madrid, Architectural Temperance provides readers with new insights into the cultural history of early modern Spain.
