Art Treasures in Florence
museums, churches, refectories, palaces and itineraries
Art Treasures in Florence is a fascinating itinerary through the city's museums, churches, refectories, and palaces. For the first time, detailed entries on the city's sites are collected in this single volume. The book is divided into two sections: the first contains the entries for monuments and works of art, grouped on the basis of the category they belong to (museums, churches, refectories, palaces). In the second section, a few city itineraries, according to a topographical criterion, are proposed to the reader and include references to the in-depth entries found in the first section. Florence truly has a lot to offer. In fact, you can visit the city by choosing a time period (Romanesque, Gothic, Humanism, etc.), or an artist (Brunelleschi, Donatello, Masaccio, Michelangelo). You can even follow an iconographic itinerary (the David, the Last Supper, portraits). Finally, you can create your own tour according to types of work (the "gold backgrounds," pulpits, funerary monuments, etc.). Thanks to the many photos that accompany the texts, this volume will allow you to remember things easily and create, therefore, a precious testimony of an unforgettable trip. Handy information and an index of artists and sites are also included.
Ilaria Taddei is a prominent Italian art historian and also a greatly praised guide.
