Including more than sixty-five texts and profusely illustrated throughout, this anthology fills a significant gap in the published literature on urban conservation and covers subjects of geographic diversity, reactions to the transformation of traditional cities, reading the historic city, the search for contextual continuities and values, and the challenges of sustainability.
“Successfully bringing together a wide selection of papers and extracts of papers across cultures, geographies and time. . . . This format makes for an impressive assembly of readings, a compactum as it were, as an essential reference resource on this broad but less appreciated conservation topic.”
Jeff Cody is senior project specialist at the Getty Conservation Institute. Francesco Siravo is an eminent Italian architect specialising in historic preservation and town planning.
