Abstract :
Profiles the life and professional activity of Augusto Cesari, an Italian architect resident (1870-1921) in Egypt. (This study is based on an autobiographical manuscript by Cesari in the State Archives, Ancona.) Observes that although many works have been attributed to him, relatively few are mentioned in the manuscript. For 20 years (1870-1890) he taught design at a professional school in Cairo, and then undertook commissions for domestic and civil architecture until his retirement in 1904. ;
