Description:
This comprehensive study of Giuseppe Terragni and Pietro Lingeri’s never built memorial to Dante in Mussolini's Italy offers insight into both the Danteum’s design and the cultural and political climate of the times. It includes ninety-three drawings and seventeen color plates of the original drawings. Author Thomas L. Schumacher further elaborates on the architect’s relationship to Le Corbusier and the monumentalist and rationalist movements.
