Full Description

The palaces built in Rome in the 17th and 18th centuries are some of the most magnificent buildings in Europe – yet they remain relatively unfamiliar. This is the first stand-alone overview guide ever published. We produce it as a companion volume to our revised edition of Anthony Blunt’s seminal A Guide to Baroque Rome: The Churches.

In this volume, Anthony Langdon draws on an encyclopedic knowledge of the hugely productive scholarship in the field, which he distills with elegance, acumen and wit. Over the last 30 years all aspects of the design, construction, decoration and functions of these great houses have been examined and our understanding of the period has been transformed. Scholars and visitors will find this volume stimulating, concise and eminently readable.

The rich illustrations include over 140 contemporary prints, as well as plans, elevations, and specially taken photographs. Full references and indexes complete this indispensable aid to further research.
