Description


The architectural treasures of Italy, from the Abbey of San Fruttuoso to the historic Olivetti shop in Venice

For centuries, artists and writers on the Grand Tour have come to admire the beauty of Italy's architectural heritage. However, if funds for a Grand Tour are short, then this lavishly illustrated volume is the next best thing.

Incredible Italian Beauties captures the breadth of Italy's architectural treasure from the medieval castles at Avio, Manta and Masino to Carlo Scarpa's Olivetti Shop in Venice. Hundreds of color images illustrate the brilliantly colored marble, the terrazzo floors, the historic frescos and other delights housed in Italy's villas, palazzos, monasteries, citadels and castles.

The volume is published in a completely revised edition, updated and extended with the inclusion of all-new locations, illustrating places and monuments that over the years have come under the protection of FAI, the Italian government body tasked with protecting Italy's incomparable natural and artistic heritage.
