Promotional Information

Pope Nicholas V was the father of modern urban planning. Burroughs's fine study of the Rome that Nicholas and his contemporaries planned is authoritative in its scholarship and innovative in its interpretation. -- James Ackerman, Kingsley Porter Professor of Fine Arts, Emeritus Harvard University More than a history of fifteenth century Rome during its early modern formation, Burroughs outlines a new theroy of urbanism, relating architecture and the built environment to the land and to human processes of communication. This book is a unique synthesis of semiotic theory, documentary research, and interpretation of urban image, form and function -- an important contribution to renaissance studies and the history of art. -- George L. Gorse, Viola Horton Associate Professor of the History of Art, Pomona and Scripps Colleges
