The Arts of Piranesi. Architect, etcher, antiquarian, vedutista, designer is a catalogue for the homonymous exhibition on the work of Giambattista Piranesi, curated by Michele de Lucchi, Adam Lowe and Giuseppe Pavanello, taking place in CaixaForum Madrid from 25 April to 9 September 2012 and CaixaForum Barcelona from October 2012 to January 2013.

A collaboration between Factum Arte and the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, the exhibition opened in Madrid after receiving great reviews when it was in Venice for the Biennale of Architecture in 2010. In addition to objects realised using traditional and digital modelling from the original designs by Piranesi, the exhibition also contains Gabriele Basilico's sensitive black and white photographs of the famous Vedute and over 250 etchings by Piranesi.

The catalogue is available from CaixaForum or Factum Arte for 35 euros plus post and packaging. Also available in English.

Italian edition also available. Purchase through Marsilio Editori.
