9780262200721: Venice and the Renaissance

In this study of the process of decision-making about building and urban planning in Venice, the author examines the intersections of Venetian culture from the beginning of the 16th century to the first decades of the 17th to show how that process affected the choice of designers and styles. Influential doges, such as Andrea Gritt and Leonardo Dona, architects and artists like Sansavino, Serlio, Palladio and Scamozzi, and scientists Francesco Barozzi and Galileo, all figure in this account of the development of an architecture understood as metaphor for absolute truth and good government.
