Catalogue Note

An inscription appears on the bottom of one of the two projects : a quote from a letter written by Theodoric (474-526), King of Goths, to his first architect : "It is an honorable position and a design worthy of glory for one who aims to deliver monuments to the centuries to come, which will be subject to admiration of posterity".
