The Politics of the Piazza


Eamonn Canniffe has written a new book entitled “The Politics of the Piazza: the history and meaning of the Italian square”. The book, which has been published by Ashgate has been described by Professor Nicholas Temple of Lincoln School of Architecture as making

an important contribution to our understanding of the changing political landscapes that have influenced public space in Italy. The study succeeds in both being a chronological survey, demonstrating a breadth of knowledge of critical developments from ancient Rome to the present, and a series of insightful case-studies.
