Presented by Aurora Scotti, the Jacobin utopia in Milan showcases the majestic design of the Foro Bonaparte by architect and architectural theorist Giovanni Antonio Antolini (1753-1841).
This volume focuses on one of the most renowned and emblematic designs of the revolutionary period between the Age of Enlightenment and the establishment of industrialisation: a remarkably harmonious urban complex featuring an enormous circular square that was meant to be the beginning of the modern city.
