Seven modern interpretations of archeological sites
It is well-known that Italy is a country abundant with history and has excavation sites dating back to the Etruscans dotted throughout the countryside and even within some cities. The role of archaeology in architecture is an important one, but rather than isolating, removing or even covering up important archaeological remains, architects in Italy are using archaeology as a focal point for urban regeneration and restoration projects. Here are Isplora’s selection of projects that are coming up with innovative solutions to blending the old with the new.
