Reviews

"A masterpiece of analysis. Ghirardo's book not only brings Rossi's work to life, it is itself a demonstration piece of a type of architectural history that is increasingly missed in our day and age: the art of historicizing architecture from the building outward."--Mark Jarzombek, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
"Diane Ghirardo makes a powerful claim about Rossi's architectural achievements and artistic identity, locating his religious perspective and baroque sensibility at the root of his originality."--Giuseppe Mazzotta, Yale University
"Ghirardo's book is a remarkable account of Rossi's work as understood through a close reading of the architect's work and writing. It also serves as an impassioned call for historians to consider architectural projects and related creative output as the primary object of study."--Lucy M. Maulsby, Northeastern University
