THE STORY:

On the night of July 15, 1823, a fire ravaged the Basilica of St. Paul Outside the Walls and in one night, destroyed the Paleo-Christian, Byzantine, Renaissance and Baroque architectural and decorative treasures it housed.


To rebuild the basilica on Via Ostiense the architects sketched drawings, snapped photographs, and composed documents detailing the restoration and reconstruction of the basilica after the fire, dating between 1823 to approximately 1938.


These images total 1136 documents and range from graphite blueprints; to 1:1 scale drawings depicting carvings, columns, moldings, and entablatures; to architectural designs which describe the transept, altar and bell tower; to colored pencil sketches of mosaics, friezes, and ceilings.


The quantity and quality of the documents, known in the international academic circle, are of extraordinary interest in the study of history, archeology, architecture, and art.


Help us preserve these artistic testaments of human ingenuity, creativity and determination, that record the effort required to rebuild this monumental Basilica.
