Abstract

The realization of the bastions, in the mid-sixteenth century, radically changed the urban image of Capua and, at a broader scale, the landscape context, preciously connoting the city as key stronghold of the Southern territory and place of experimentation of the adaptation of the fortifications to the innovations of the oxidative techniques, until the first half of the nineteenth century. The paper makes use of a remarkable corpus of unpublished graphs, found in different European archives, the reconsideration of those already known and of new documents (mainly of the eighteenth-century procurement) to trace, in one with a systematic analysis stratigraphy of the elevated, to identify the chronologies of the imposing surviving structures, proposing significant advancements of knowledge on the subject. This paper also reconsiders the relationship between the project experiments carried out in Italy during the first half of the sixteenth century and those conducted in the new world for the fortifications of Spanish colonial cities.
