we will then take a walk through san saba, another garden city example from the early 20th c, past streets named for artists + architects. (can you believe it?)
as always in rome, earlier layers appear. in a memorable example, we will pass a section of the servian wall.
we will pause at the piazza dei cavalieri di malta, santa maria del priorato, one of GB Piranesi’s few built works, c1760, for a few words about the graphical in architecture + games of composition + appropriation, before concluding the morning’s itinerario at Santa Sabina. note that park just beyond santa sabina offers a spectacular panorama of rome.
