Diverse Maniere: Piranesi, Fantasy and Excess is the catalogue created by Factum Arte for the homonymous exhibition which took place at Sir John's Soane Museum from 8th March till 31st May 2014. The exhibition produced by the John Soane Museum in collaboration with Factum Arte and Fondazione Giorgio Cini is based on a group of physical objects made from designs by Piranesi that were never realised during his life. The catalogue designed by Blanca Nieto at Factum Arte include images of the exhibition's displays consisting of meticulous three dimensional reproductions of the objects with details on how each object has been created. Along with an introduction to Soane's relationship with Piranesi, how influential Piranesi's work was to Soane, and Factum Arte's own interest in Piranesi and Soane. The objects are shown in the context of prints, drawings and books that were in Soane's collection. The exhibition has been curated by Jerzy Kierkuc-Bielinski.
