The contemporary work of art, being new, should be safe and present fewer restoration problems than an antique, hence old one. This volume, through never published conference proceedings held at Castello di Rivoli in 1987 and in 2012, demonstrates quite the contrary, revealing the matters due to the inner fragility of a modern wwork of art.

The author considers the politicsand processes involved in building the city of Rome during the baroque period. Habel previously focused on the grand schemes of patronage; now, however, she reconstructs the role of the public voice in the creation of the city. She presents the case that Rome's built environment did not merely reflect the vision of patrons and architects who simply imposed buildings and spaces upon the city's populace.
