The essay investigates the days spent in Rome by the young Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, future Le Corbusier, in October 1911 at the end of his Journey to the East. It highlights the architect's interest in the monuments of Roman antiquity and his admiration for the plasticity of Michelangelo's architecture in St. Peter's Basilica. Le Corbusier describes the Lesson of Rome in in a long essay published in the magazine Esprit Nouveau, which later became one of the fundamental chapters of his book Toward an architecture.
