Description

In his seven-volume Tutte l'opere d'architettura that first appeared in 1584, Serlio aimed to provide a practical manual of architecture while avoiding explicit theory. As such the work became one of the most influential of all publications on architecture. The third book which is displayed here, was first printed in 1540. In it Serlio documents and discusses Roman and Renaissance architecture. He measured and reconstructed partial ruins. Serlio did not doubt the value of the lessons from antiquity. In acknowledging that the work of the Greeks was superior to the Romans, he prepared the way for debate in subsequent centuries.
