This volume studies the architecture and urbanism of modern-era
Italian colonialism (1869-1943) as it sought to build colonies in
North and East Africa and the eastern Mediterranean. Mia Fuller
follows, not only the design of the physical architecture, but also
the development of colonial design theory, based on the assumptions
made about the colonized, and also the application of modernist
theory to both Italian architecture and that of its colonies.
Moderns Abroad is the first book to present an overview of Italian
colonial architecture and city planning. In chronicling Italian
architects' attempts to define a distinctly Italian colonial
architecture that would set Italy apart from Britain and France, it
provides a uniquely comparative study of Italian colonialism and
architecture that will be of interest to specialists in modern
architecture, colonial studies, and Italian studies alike.
