This project studies the urban planning efforts by private citizens on three sites in Renaissance and Baroque Rome.
Each site was shaped by an owner or architect who negotiated with the nascent civic authority to create physical prominence for their property.
Existing streets were closed, new streets were opened; views through existing buildings were created and views onto existing piazzas were blocked. The palazzi’s owners determined when and how they could see and be seen.
Read on to find out how long these physical and legal accomplishments endured in the “Eternal City.”
