Lucca Encounters The World

£70.00

Product description

From the dust jacket: Because of its particular location, Lucca has always been able to adapt itself t to the various historical cycles, expressing in culture and institutions a peculiar synthesis, undoubtedly affected by the spirit of the age yet deeply rooted in the traditions and character of its people. On certain specific occasions, Lucca became the setting for events of great political and symbolic significance. This book, through the contributions of distinguished local scholars, provides a complete account both of these significant moments and of the extraordinary specific character of Lucca in its culture and its history.

Richly illustrated with photography by Carlo Cantini.

Dark grey hardback with dust jacket and slipcase. Unfortunately the slipcase is damaged, torn along almost the entire of one top edge. The book itself, and its dust-jacket are in superb condition; maybe never even read.
