12 June 2023 - 14 June 2023
On 12, 13 and 14 June the British School at Rome is excited to present the exhibition “Giovanni Battista Piranesi: Prints from the Research Collections of the BSR” curated by Clare Hornsby (BSR) and Caroline Barron (Durham).
As part of an ongoing project, launched in 2021, to create a catalogue of the etchings by Giovanni Battista Piranesi in the BSR collection, this event, the third in the series of four annual exhibitions, will display this year’s selection of prints, focussing on the “Vedute di Roma” series and arranged to trace a visitor’s itinerary through the 18th century city. The display will include some guide books and maps by other authors that explore the same itinerary from viewpoints different to that of Piranesi, such as that of Giuseppe Vasi.
