COMUNICACIÓN Y PRENSA
This book presents an extensive repertoire of the restoration works that proved decisive in the construction of the monumental landscape of the Alhambra and Generalife. These interventions range from museum installations to archaeological digs and the design of the infrastructures required to adapt the Monument to the increasing demands of tourism. This is the first systematic review of the restoration work this architect from Granada did on the Alhambra. The author approaches her subject and his extensive body of work from a very broad perspective, resulting in a demanding, highly challenging study.
The work done by Francisco Prieto-Moreno as architect-conservator over the period 1936-1978 is an essential link in the chain tracing the history of the Alhambra and its analysis offers us a greater understanding of the complex panorama of monument restoration in Spain over these four decades. This book is aimed at specialists but could also appeal to a wider audience interested in learning more about the transformation of the Alhambra over these 40 years. Lastly it seeks to define the valuable legacy left behind by Prieto-Moreno, which with its pros and cons deserved to be remembered and submitted to the necessary rigorous analysis.
