The best for detail... Mar 31, 2000
I really enjoyed this book for all its content on the wonderful churches in Italy. I never knew there were so many. The pics in the book are very artistic and detailed. I was impressed with also the amount of info related to the history of these fine churches. I am moved by the Roman Catholic Vatican and its long tradition. IMHO this book is a must buy for your coffee table. A real eye opener and conversation starter.
