About this title

Synopsis:

An illustrated survey of the architecture and urban development of Ven ice. Goy's work includes sections on some of the best-known buildings, including the Basilica of San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale and the Rialto bridge, providing an introduction to the historical background of the city. The author examines the the way in which Venice's unusual topography has influenced the form and type of the city's buildings - discussing important building types such as churches and palaces and examining the middle-class and working-class districts of the city. The buildings are set in historical context with photographs and paintings and prints by some of the artists who have recorded the city fom Carpaccio and Bellini to Ruskin. This text traces the origins of the city, from the end of the Roman Empire when it was no more than a few scattered villages to the built-up city we see today.
