Saper vedere l’architettura by Bruno Zevi (Einaudi, 1953) discusses the value and meaning of architecture against other art fields. Zevi encourages to look at architecture and its spatial features also in the everyday surroundings. The discussed architectural examples range from the urban characteristics of Ancient Rome to 20th-century modernism.

The copy in our stock is in nice condition. The pages are clean without any markings, but there is age-related yellowing on their edges. The glueing of the binding is fine. The covers show shelf wear and signs of use, and there are some tears and edge wear on the dust jacket. The colours printed on the covers and spine are a bit faded. The previous owner has inscribed his signature on the first flyleaf.
