Overview

Italy has the Western world's richest concentration of archaeological and architectural sites, which have made the country an extraordinary repository of works of art. This six-volume, illustrated boxed-set lists and describes, region by region, Italy's vast array of classical monuments, churches, monasteries, cathedrals, palaces, villas and fortresses, detailing their architectural features, artistic contents and historical significance. It covers more than 3500 sites spread across 95 provinces and should be a valuable reference tool for historians, art historians and enthusiasts.
