Item description for Churches of Florence pb (Piccoli Di Arsenale (English ed.).) by Timothy Verdon...
The very image of Florence has been built around her churches and she identifies with them in a way in which no other city does. The values of Florentine life and history can be recognised in the network of ecclesiastical buildings which continue to signal the city's development after 'Churches of Florence' provides not only an extensive guide to the many churches that can be found in the city of Florence, but also grants the reader a comprehensive, fascinating insight into the history of The Church and its impact on the city itself. An historical account of the 'New Cathedral' and Brunelleschi's Dome are also documented. The book contains stunning full colour photographs of every featured church and boasts a full bibliography.
