Opus Incertum è la rivista di storia dell’architettura del Dipartimento di Architettura dell’Università di Firenze. Fondata nel 2005, Opus Incertum intende costituire uno strumento di promozione e di diffusione della ricerca nel campo della storia dell’architettura e della città, intese nell’accezione più ampia del termine per quanto riguarda sia gli ambiti cronologici e geografici, sia quelli tematici. La rivista accoglie infatti contributi di studiosi italiani e stranieri specialisti nella disciplina, con l’obiettivo di stimolare, favorire lo sviluppo e rendere noti i risultati di ricerche originali, senza escludere nessun taglio metodologico che si basi su un rigoroso approccio scientifico. Lo scopo è quello di offrire prospettive inedite e nuovi approfondimenti conoscitivi su temi generali o su argomenti specifici riguardanti l’ambito disciplinare della rivista.
