LA BIOGRAFIA DI Giovanni Battista Piranesi

PIRANESI Giovanni Battista (Maiano di Mestre, Venezia 1720 - Roma 1778).
L'artista si formò inizialmente a Venezia a contatto con il classicismo palladiano dell'epoca.
Nel 1740 si trasferisce a Roma dove, nel 1743, pubblica il ciclo di incisioni "Prima parte di architetture e prospettive".
Ne esce una versione ampliata nel 1750 "Opere varie di architettura".
L'artista si dedicò per quasi trent'anni (1748-1775) alla realizzazione delle "Vedute di Roma".
Si interessò di Arte greca ed etrusca e si occupò di architettura.
Realizzò la "Villa", la "Piazza" e la "Chiesa dei Cavalieri di Malta" Sull'Aventino (1764-1766).Tra le sue opere ricordiamo anche "Grotteschi e capricci" (1745), "Antichità romane" (1756) e "Vasi candelabri, cippi...
"(1778).
