The Grand Tour in the Modern and Post-Modern Age

The 19th and 20th centuries witnessed a change in the attitude of artists travelling to Italy towards the canon of Classical art. There is now an increased interest in whatever is contemporary –there is a reception of the Futurists, arte povera or Italian design, artists turn to Marcello Piacentini, the “Superstudio” or Aldo Rossi. This book on The Grand Tour in the Modern and Post-Modern Age enquires into the necessity of the “Italian Experience” in the present-day training of artists and architects in the face of historical developments.
