Providing a major overview of the seminal architectural achievements of Brunelleschi, Alberti, Bramante, Michelangelo and other celebrated figures of the Italian Renaissance, this massive study of important religious and secular buildings of the 15th and 16th centuries presents architectural models and plans (among them a monumental model of St. Peter's created from 1539 to 1546 to record the designs of Antonio da Sangallo the Younger) as well as hundreds of drawings, paintings, prints, manuscripts, medals and other works. Includes detailed scholarly commentaries on the exhibited objects, some 35 texts discussing individual architects and projects, and 13 lengthy essays examining such topics as the varied functions of architectural models in Renaissance Italy, the integral role of figurative sculpture in the design of churches, the heightened interest in classical traditions among Renaissance architects (particularly in Rome), the development of distinctive regional styles of architecture, and the political and social forces that shaped the growth of Italian cities during the period. **This edition is out of print; an abridged edition was published in 1997 under the same title (see Worldwide 97792).**
