Dear Friends,

we would like to introduce you the album THE ARCHITECTURE OF ITALIAN LIGHTHOUSES by Cristiana BARTOLOMEI.

The present volume, The Architecture of Italian Lighthouses, inaugurates a series of publications celebrating these symbols of safety through a detailed and illustrated study of their typological and architectural features.

An illustrated catalogue of 45 lighthouses, still working today along the Adriatic and the Ionian coasts. The book describes them, for the first time, with measured drawings and original illustrations, pointing out typologies and materials. Other forthcoming volumes will introduce the reader to lighthouses along the Tyrrhenian coasts, on the Isle of Sardinia, and other smaller islands.

The album is a luxe large-format (24 x 30 cm.) publication, in hard cover, with more than 300 photographs, written in English and Italian too. It is printed on top-quality paper and all its pages are in full colour: the package includes a special edition of bookmarks, postcards and calendars. We shall be pleased to send you information and some sample images of this unique publication.

This is a very useful book not only for those with a special interest in the world’s lighthouses network, but also for all those interested in the architectural heritage; so we invite you on a special journey along our coasts: surprise, charm and discovery await you.

If you like to enjoy these magnificent illustrations of Italian lighthouses available in this limited edition, please contact us or visit the web-site www.italianlighthouses.com

We look forward to an early response and thank you for your interest.

Yours sincerely,

The Italian Lighthouses Staff
