CUGS Global Vantage Point Lecture Series: "Authoritarian Hell or Workers' Paradise: The Papal New Town and Saltworks at Cervia, Italy," presented by Kristin Triff, Associate Professor of Art History, Trinity College. The papal new town of Cervia is an exception to the history of ideal cities in Early Modern Europe, which is dominated by influential but largely unrealized projects by Renaissance theorists such as Leon Battista Alberti and Filarete. Situated at the intersection of military and humanistic planning traditions, Cervia's novel combination of urban, architectural, social, and industrial elements was hugely successful, inspiring the later utopian designs of Ledoux and Boullee in revolutionary France. Presented on December 6, 2011 at Trinity College, Center for Urban and Global Studies.
