Storia Dell'Architettura Italiana (Il Quattrocento)

£75.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

In very good condition, with just some rubbing wear to the bottom edge of the slipcase (please see photo ) and a small orange sticker to the spine. Italian-language edition with many colour and black and white illustrations.
"An overview of the history of Italian architecture in the 1400s, a revolutionary century, filled with important artistic figures. The specific contribution of architecture to the theoretical formulation and practical application of Renaissance aesthetic ideals was decisive, moving along two fundamental axes: that of perspective as a method of research, and that of inspiration from antiquity.
The volume provides thorough coverage, with a fine selection of illustrations, on the masterpieces of Filippo Brunelleschi, the contributions of the Florentine painters and sculptors, the theoretical and practical work of Leon Battista Alberti, the approach to architecture of Milan and northwestern Italy, Venice and the cities under its dominion, and important contributions on Ferrara, Bologna, Siena and Urbino, Pienza, Florence in the second half of the century, Rome, Naples, Palermo and Sicily."
