From the neoclassicism of Thomas JeffersonÕs design of Monticello and sketches of the White House, to the strong Roman classicism of the Jefferson Memorial, to Constantino Brumidi's frescoes in Congress and the National Library, to the striking composition of Luigi Moretti's Watergate ComplexÑAmericaÕs capital is infused with the influences of a culture that laid the foundations of Western society. This book is an homage to this strong and still alive relationship.
