About this Item: Roma, 1665. "Incisione su rame in ottimo stato di conservazione. Esemplare di primo stato da " Il nuovo teatro delle fabriche, et edificii, in prospettiva di Roma moderna, sotto il felice pontificato di N. S. papa Alessandro VII ". In tre volumi, editi da G. G. de Rossi tra il 1665 e il 1669, illustra le fabbriche realizzate o ampliate durante il pontificato di Alessandro VII Chigi, mentre il III si riferisce alle chiese restaurate dal pontefice Clemente IX. L'opera aveva lo scopo di divulgare la nuova immagine di Roma, con i suoi palazzi, chiese e giardini, secondo un progetto unitario di espansione urbana, in sintonia con i criteri del colto e raffinato Fabio Chigi : il papa, infatti, decise di aprire nuove strade, di abbellire con fontane e monumenti la città, anche a dimostrazione della potenza finanziaria e culturale della sua famiglia. Prima di allora l'incisione di veduta a Roma, che pure aveva prodotto numerose serie dì stampe da E. Dupérac a G. Lauro, si era interessata principalmente alla ripresa della città antica. Bisognerà attendere proprio il completamento dei rinnovamenti urbanistici e delle realizzazioni architettoniche dei papi seicenteschi, per assistere alla diffusione di raccolte dedicate alla città moderna. Dopo la morte del Falda, verrà pubblicato "Il quarto libro del nuovo teatro delli palazzi in prospettiva di Roma mooderna dato in luce sotto il felice pontificato di nostro signore papa Innocenzo XII", opera di Alessandro Specchi, edito nel 1699." "Etching, in perfect condition. Example in the first state, from " Il nuovo teatro delle fabriche, et edificii, in prospettiva di Roma moderna, sotto il felice pontificato di N. S. papa Alessandro VII ". One of the most important architectural projects of the seventeenth century was the urban renovation of Rome. Under the brilliant leadership of Pope Alessandro VII (1655-1667), Rome dramatically emerged as one of the most modern and beautiful cities of the new Baroque age. Within several decades spacious roadways were constructed, monumental buildings arose, and many public squares appeared with elaborate fountains and monuments. To be sure, this massive undertaking was meant to underline the absolute power of the Papacy but it also brought forth a new flowering of Italian art and architecture. The Nuovo Teatro was initiated in 1665 to depict the new Rome in a series of etchings. What it gave to future generations was a magnificent historical record of views etched by two of Italy's greatest architectural artists. The printing and publishing of these important etchings was entrusted to Giacomo de Rossi (1626-1691), the head of the most dominant Roman publishing house. ( Sons and nephews of de Rossi, in fact, continued the publishing house until 1738 when the business was sold to Pope Clement XII to form the basis of the Regia Calcografia.) Altogether, four sets of Nuovo Teatro were created during the seventeenth century. Volumes one and two were both published in the year of 1665 and dealt mainly in views of the new piazzas, gardens, terraces and their surrounding buildings. Volume 3 was published in 1669 and concentrated upon the newly constructed churches of Rome. Every plate from the first three sets was both designed and etched by the influential architectural artist, Giovanni Battista Falda (1643-1678). For reasons unknown the fourth and final volume (52 etchings) did not appear until 1699. It was published by Giacomo's successor, Domenico de Rossi, and featured views of the palaces and stately homes of Rome. Each plate was designed and etched by the famous architect and etcher, Alessandro Specchi (1668-1729)." Dimensioni 170 260mm. Seller Inventory # S29836
