Abstract

We report on three twentieth century lattice-shell domes in Rome. Two are architectural, and are among the very first such domes ever built. The third is a sculpture, and was called “geodesic” by its author, Adriano Graziotti. Unlike the many domes that characterize the skyline in Rome, for all three in this paper the spherical shape is functional rather than ritual.
