    Abstract:
    This thematic session of the journal is devoted to expressions of creative writing inspired by monuments. Our aim is to understand how and why diverse re/constructions of their specific genesis, descriptions of architectural features, explanations of symbolism, histories of mentors, sponsors and artists generate over/interpretations in the form of essays, short stories, historical novels and poems. Each article will investigate the ways in which writers, while speculating on and verbally reconstructing a monument, can instil aesthetic and ideological appreciations. The narration of monuments will have been examined with particular reference to: - polysemantic buildings, rooted in a specific place and historical context, but also open to multiple intercultural elaborations; - modes of constructing, restructuring or contesting historical identities and cultural memories; - stimuli for the imagery, through which mythical figures and events are evoked.
