The Ducal Palace of Urbino is one of the greatest monuments of the Italian Renaissance and at the same time an architectural and urban labyrinth in which it is necessary to lose oneself in order to unravel the mystery that unravels among the sequence of private and public spaces that compose it. This architecture, which is at once a living organism and a fragment in the Marche landscape, is reread in sections useful for recomposing a unity that has been shattered over time and is now re-presented through its most evident and representative elements.
An important lecture for the first time transcribed and published by architectural historian Manfredo Tafuri is interwoven with the photographic rereading of the five-year field work directed by Armin Linke with five groups of students from the ISIA in Urbino.
