This volume, number 13 in the Melbourne Art Journal series, brings together nine scholars who each explore an aspect of the art and architecture of Rome situated within the topography-or map-of Rome in the Renaissance and Early Modern periods, with several studies focusing on the eighteenth century. These are studies of sight and site: about how the appearance of different regions or aspects of the city intersect with complex systems of political, economic, social and artistic institutions and customs.

Associate Professor David R. Marshall FAHA
Is Principal Fellow, Art History, School of Culture and Communication, the University of Melbourne, and a fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities. He is a specialist in seventeenth and eighteenth century landscape and view painting, particularly the work of Giovanni Paolo Panini, Piranesi and Filippo Juvarra. His interest in architectural view painting was initiated by his research into the seventeenth-century architectural painters, Viviano and Niccolò Codazzi, resulting in his publication Viviano and Niccolò Codazzi and the Baroque Architectural Fantasy (Rome: Jan di Sapi Editori, 1993). He has published widely since on architectural view painting and landscape painting in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Rome in such journals as Art Bulletin, Burlington Magazine, Journal of the History of Collections, Artibus et Historiae, Storia dellArte and Journal of the History of Gardens and Designed Landscapes. He was the founder and editor of Melbourne Art Journal from 1997 to 2015, and in this role he edited (and contributed chapters to) monographs that include The Italians in Australia: Studies in Renaissance and Baroque Art (Florence: Centro Di, 2004), Art, Site and Spectacle: Studies in Early Modern Visual Culture (Melbourne, 2007), and most recently The Site of Rome: Studies in the Art and Topography of Rome 1400-1750, (Rome: LErma di Bretschneider, 2014). With Susan Russell and Karin Wolfe he was the editor of Roma Britannica: Art Patronage and Cultural Exchange in Eighteenth-century Rome, British School at Rome, London, 2010. Complementary to this monograph on the Villa Patrizi is his edition of the letters of Cardinal Patrizi (David R. Marshall (ed.), The Letters of Cardinal Patrizi 1718-1727, Collectanea Archivi Vaticani (Dall'Archivio Segreto Vaticano. Miscellanea di Testi, Saggi e Inventari VIII , pp. 143-520.).
