"In this splendidly illustrated, intelligently designed, and elegantly written book, Areli Marina establishes herself as a leading new voice in medieval Italian urbanistic studies. Rooting her innovative work in serious archeological investigation and nuanced readings of archival documentation (both written and visual), Marina succeeds in untangling the complicated building history of Parma's two principal squares...demonstrating the intelligence with which medieval civic leaders shaped those spaces and arranged buildings around and in them." --Gary Radke, Speculum 88.3 (July 2013)
"The Italian Piazza Transformed makes an extremely valuable empirical advance in Italian urban studies. Marina's careful reconstruction, through historical texts and site surveys, of the development of both these important Parmesan sites places their study on new foundations. She also offers a model of how open space in an urban fabric can be rigorously studied. One can only hope others will follow the stimulating lead Marina pioneers in this book." --Maureen C. Miller, Renaissance Quarterly 65.4 (Winter 2012)
"Marina's highly developed method of processing, analyzing, and organizing disparate spatial, historical, and representational systems not only makes an important contribution to contemporary debates about urban design, but would also have been immediately recognized and greatly appreciated by her medieval forebears." --Niall Atkinson, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians 72.1 (March 2013)
