This week of Italian design research topic is about the city: Rome.
I am focused on exploring the significant contribution of the Pope Sixtus V in order to form the rome
city.Briefly speaking, the concept of Pope Sixtus V’s urban design strategy is “point in space”, which is a
space formed by the monument at certain point of the city to form the circulation between them and
surrounding itself.Hence the basic urban feature of Rome is formed.
