9781860645709: The Monuments of Italy: A Regional Encyclopaedia of Art, Architecture and Archaeology from Classical to Modern Times

Italy has the world's richest concentration of archaeological and architectural sites which, with its museums, makes the country the most extraordinary repository of works of art. The Monuments of Italy covers just over 3,500 places and nearly 10,000 objects spread across 95 provinces and is an original work of major importance. It will become the standard English-language reference work on Italy's heritage sites and an essential tool for historians, art historians and travellers.

About the Author:

Sir Michael Oppenheimer is an historian and a former lecturer at Lincoln College, Oxford. Over forty years he has researched and recorded every cultural site of major importance in Italy.

From Library Journal:

This massive work by Oppenheimer (a former lecturer at Lincoln Coll., Oxford) is a detailed geographic guide to Italy's archaeological, architectural, and artistic treasures. Five volumes arranged by region and province provide historical facts and descriptive observations about 3500-plus sites and, in the case of museums, highlights of their collections. Even the aquarium in Venice is mentioned. Each of the first five volumes begins with a brief historical overview of the region, though unfortunately an art history overview is lacking. The work is illustrated with black-and-white photographs taken by the author and includes general maps intended for use in conjunction with road maps. Italian names are used, and those unfamiliar with architectural terminology can consult the glossary in Volume 6. Also included in the last volume are a biographical index of architects and artists (which is not restricted to Italians), a brief historical time line up to 1870, a list of Roman emperors, tips on Italian pronunciation, and a comprehensive index of places. Each of the other volumes also contains its own index of places as well as an index of architects and artists. The work is aimed at nonexperts but is also intended as a comprehensive gazetteer. While it is obviously too big and expensive to serve as an ordinary sight-seeing guide, it is recommended for major Italy enthusiasts with private collections and for large research libraries.
