Theatro delle Citta d’Italia
de Beer Itb 1629 B
[Padua]: Francesco Bertelli
The borders between countries may change, but the city and its topography remain fixed – a stable point of reference. The Paduan-based copper engraver, etcher and publisher Francesco Bertelli was one of many who produced map books for local and international visitors. This publication contains 78 town-plans of Italian cities, wonderful ‘bird’s-eye’ views of places you might – or might not – visit. This 17th century work retains its usefulness today; the images within the book have provided the internal structure for this exhibition. Pisa is instantly recognisable with its leaning tower.
