Item description for Italian Architecture of the 16th Century by Colin Rowe, C. Rowe & L. Satkowski...

Italian Architecture of the 16th Century is the last published work of the legendary Colin Rowe, the fruit of his four-year collaboration with Leon Satkowski, a Rowe student and author of Giorgio Vasari: Architect and Courtier. The book is a testament to the buildings, architects, and artists Rowe most deeply appreciated. For the millions of travelers who flock to Italy to see the art and architecture of the 16th century-subjects that captured Rowe's heart and challenged his fertile mind-this book is at once a pleasurable read and the pinnacle in scholarship. It is written in Rowe's unmatched and engaging personal style, and it is beautifully illustrated throughout with photographs, drawings, and paintings of the art and architecture that make this period and this place so beloved. The book emphasizes the leading subjects of the 16th -century Reniassance: the architects (Bramante, Vignola), the patrons (Leo X, Cosimo I de Medici), the artists (Michelangelo), and the cities (Rome, Venice, Florence). As the finest critical scholarship on conquecento Italy and an accessible guide for the non-scholar, this book is destined to be regarded as one of Rowe's most important.

Reviews - What do customers think about Italian Architecture of the 16th Century?

A little deeper into the high renaissance  Nov 29, 2005
I'm not an academic on architecture, I simply love he buildings of the renaissance an can look at theme for hours, but this book was accessibly written in my opinion. All the major architects are presented and their work described. Here you find the information that coffee-table-books (by their nature) lack. Put the two together and you understand the era so much better. Architecture is i visual art and must be viewed, if not on location, at least by pictures. And thats why my fith stars is missing, it's sparesly illustrated, too sparesly for me as the topic is architecture.
