In the book Architettura, con il suo commento et figure architect Giovanni Battista Caporali translates and comments on the first five books of architecture by Vitruvius. This also explains the general composition and organization of the book. The pages are structured so that there is a separate text section on almost every page, which is printed larger and highlighted. This part represents the translation of Vitruvius’ text. The thoughts and comments of Caporali are arranged in smaller printed letters around this. A similar rule applies for the numerous illustrations, which consist mostly of technical architectural drawings which show The different building steps. But since the first five books of architecture are on the diverse topics of Landscape architecture, Construction materials, Temples and Public places, The illustrations differ not only in their subjects, but also in their design, size, complexity and level of detail. The purpose of the drawings is that it gives the reader a visual understanding of the written topics and enables a spatial perception. Therefore the illustrations are scattered throughout the book and occupy varying amounts of space ranging from two centimeters to a whole page, depending on the importance and style of the Drawing. In summary it can be said that both the structure and the complexity of the Text and the illustrations are more aimed at academic use. However, due to the number and elaboration of the drawings, it will also be interesting for normal readers.
