NEO-GOTHIC, GOTHIC REVIVAL

The GOTHIC revival, the GOTHIC REVIVAL (Gothic Revival) architectural style, draw inspiration from medieval architecture and the opposing neo-classical revival in the United States and great Britain; on the continent it is possible to find only separate examples of this style.

What were the mores and customs? What kind of people lived in it? And a lot of other issues in which I propose to deal in this thread.
