The Renaissance home was an outward symbol of a family’s status, wealth, and learning, so much care went into its arrangement and furnishing, as well as the art of household management. Through contemporary paintings and drawings, this fully illustrated book vividly conveys the reality of life in Florence and Venice during the era. Taking readers on a room-by-room tour through the Italian Renaissance house, from the sala (reception room) to the bedchamber, author Elizabeth Currie focuses on each one’s furnishings, appearance, and use, offering a rare insight into the life of the Renaissance family. Inside the Renaissance House is ideal for interior design enthusiasts and historians of the everyday.
