Symmetry, in mathematics today, is the property of invariance with respect to any “isometry”, i.e. with respect to any transformation leaving distances unchanged. Thanks to isometries it is possible reduce complex shapes into primary forms for the purpose of classification, for example. The buildings of the Prati district of Rome, show symmetries at various spatial scales (urban scale, front, decorations). We analyze them and propose some significance to their urban scale symmetry.

Abstract

Symmetry, in mathematics today, is the property of invariance with respect to any “isometry”, i.e. with respect to any transformation leaving distances unchanged. Thanks to isometries it is possible reduce complex shapes into primary forms for the purpose of classification, for example. The buildings of the Prati district of Rome, show symmetries at various spatial scales (urban scale, front, decorations). We analyze them and propose some significance to their urban scale symmetry.
