Book - 2006
Rate this:
The Renaissance home was an outward symbol of a family's status, wealth and erudition, so much care went into its arrangement and furnishing, and the art of household management. Inside the Renaissance House vividly conveys the realities of living in Florence and Venice during this innovative era through contemporary illustrations and lively writing and takes the reader on a room-by-room tour. From the sala, devoted to games, music and entertaining in style, to the bedchamber, which was far from the private space it is today, to the study, full of rare and precious objects, Elizabeth Currie brings each room to life.
