Concina, Ennio.

A history of Venetian architecture

Abstract: The history of Venetian architecture is no less remarkable than the history of that city itself, and Ennio Concina's comprehensive survey draws on extensive original research on the city's cultural history to offer fresh insights and an energetic approach to the architecture. Beginning with the traces of classical activity found in the territory which became ducal Venice, to its establishment as an urba magna in the Byzantine age, and the architectural glories of the Renaissance and Baroque city, Concina discusses the influence of Venice's extraordinary position in history and geography on the architectural styles to be found there. He overturns many long established theories on the development of the lagoon city, and discusses the work of many of history's most famous architects - Sansovino, Sanmicheli, Palladio, Longhena - bringing the story up to date with his examination of the twentieth-century's attempts to expand the economy, and preserve the city's heritage. This lavishly produced title is a co-edition with Electa Books, Italy.
