If you approach Venice by way of the lagoon, the city appears to be as homogenous as a single building. But as soon as you step into its shadowy alleys, you will be captivated by the architectural finesse of the palazzi, churches, and private residential palaces where the eye is drawn to the dazzling stylistic variety of Moorish window arches adjacent to balconies in Venetian Gothic and severe Renaissance facades. This volume offers detailed insight into the broad spectrum of architecture, sculpture, and painting of the city on the lagoon. The authors chronologically progress through the stages of Venetian art history from the thirteenth to the eighteenth centuries. More than 650 illustrations document the eventful artistic development of this exceptional city, whose monuments have been largely preserved until today.
What the press says:

“It is the gorgeous full-color illustrations that make this book so special, however. There are more than 500 photos of government and residential palaces, elaborate churches and other buildings, as well as fabulous paintings and sculptures. […] This heavy, big coffee table book would make an excellent gift for any traveler (or armchair traveler) or art lover.”

This book allows you to learn, explore and dream of the heaven like city and does not seize to amaze of what has been preserved until today only waiting for you to experience in real life!”
