When Soleri was a student at Torino Politechnico, he worked on an assignment to draw architectural elements for Basilica di Massenzio built in ancient Rome. The building consists of vaults and apse to create a spacious architectural presence and still partially remains in the Roman Forum in the middle of the city to remind us its glory days.The building is also said to be used as a textbook for famous Renaissance greats such as Michalangelo, Brunelleschi, Bramante and others for their architectural practices.
