Gino e Rina Tassi 1936

What can be better, it will be said, either for buildings or for institutions, than not to be incumbered with ruins? I feel that, in America, I should love new cities and new laws: there, nature and liberty speak so immediately to the soul, as to leave no want of recollections; but, in this old world of ours, the past is needful to us.
