Garden City Garbatella: The Village in Rome (Travel Photo Art #26) (Paperback)
An Ostiense neighborhood is known poetically as the village in the city of Rome.
Founded in the late 1920s, Garbatella was planned using methods derived from the English garden city movement. The blend of living quarters, commercial buildings and greenbelts created better living conditions.
Sidewalks pass by dozens of courtyards built with unique configurations of gardens, stairways and balconies. Eclectic architecture displays playful and refined elements to create a suburb unlike any other in the city of Rome.
Get lost in this relaxed Roman maze with the color photos in Garden City Garbatella: The Village in Rome (a Travel Photo Art book).
In the Travel Photo Art series, traditional tourism panoramas mix with arthouse aesthetics. These slim, passport sized productions are your passport to new perspectives on famous places. Peer around corners and discover a unique way to interact with monuments and memorials you thought you knew.
This popular series includes titles that mix text with the pictures. Books like Notre Dame Cathedral: Our Lady of Paris, featuring photos taken months before the 2019 fire, become keepsakes associated with a specific site. Titles like Lidice Lives and Terezin and Theresienstadt are deeply meaningful for families touched by the Holocaust.
