Fasolo, Andrea - Palaces of Venice - ( Item 115904 )
Published in Italy by Arsenale-EBS. 2003. First Edition First Impression. Fine Hardback. Near Fine Dustjacket. Very slight curl to dustjacket top edge. In English. The age-old history of Venice is contained in the big city residences, which were built to show the power of the most important patrician families. Great architects like Jacopo Sansovino, Michele Sanmicheli, Mauro Codussi and Baldassarre Longhena contributed to give the city a monumental structure. The palaces of the doge families, of the aristocracy and of the rich merchants were gradually enriched by important frescoes by very famous painters like Ciorgione, Tintoretto, Veronese and Tiepolo. ln the origin many of the facades of the palaces, which faced on the "Canal Crande", appeared to visitors as a very beautiful and rich open-air art gallery. Palaces, which now are public, and private residences are described in an historical and artistic comment and illustrated by a lot of colour photographs
