Description
The end of the 18th century not only saw the victory of Napoleon in Italy, but also the end of the Venetian Republic. Venice had been one of the most powerful cities in the history of the world, and in the 15th century its leading citizens began to express not only their wealth but also their aesthetic taste and culture in the construction of magnificent estates on the mainland of Veneto—the "villa civilization," a heritage very nearly lost to neglect and decay in the intervening years. Francesco Monicelli, an expert on Veneto art and the preservation of Italy's cultural heritage, here conducts a beautifully photographed tour of these opulent villas, built by such architects as Andrea Palladio, Jacopo Sansovino, and Baldassare Longhena and decorated by artists like Paolo Veronese and Tiepolo. This handsome clothbound, slipcased edition features illustrations up to 21 x 12 1/2 inches.
