    This original book challenges the perception of ochre-colored Rome as an authentic picture of the past, in favor of the Baroque reproductions that painted Rome as a light, pastel-colored city. The author leads the reader through a fascinating labyrinth of theories, observations, and technical studies to reconstruct the picture of a unique city, where color is a medium that can be used to generate visual unity. The author provides an original interpretation of historic Rome?s color architecture and materials, and develops a methodology for future restoration options.
