The fruit of the collaboration between the Soprintendenza archivistica per le Marche and Dipartimento Dardus dell’Università Politecnica delle Marche, this book brings together the results of the survey of 19th and 20th century architectural archives conserved in the region. The biographies and works of architects and engineers born or active in the Marche provinces prove to be precious sources for broadening the scope of investigation into the architectural profession and the role of clients from the Unification of Italy through multi-faceted 20th century.
Published by Gangemi, the book opens a new series entitled “Archives and architecture. Research paths”, intended to valorize these sources.
