Affreschi Italiani. Da Giotto a Tiepolo is a sophisticated, elegantly-bound book on the art of frescoes in Italy, from the rebirth of the technique in the 14th century to Tiepolo's masterpieces.
The book is a result of a collaboration with Scala, Italy’s renowned art archive, and features over 360 pictures of masterpieces from Giotto to Tiepolo. Readers will be able to admire some of the most renowned masterpieces of Italian art from the length and breadth of the peninsular; from the great paintings commissioned by the Church, to the opulent decoration of the aristocracy’s residences and the Renaissance courts, the papal apartments, the Baroque vaults of the Counter-Reformation and the frescoes in Venice’s magnificent palazzos.
The introduction is written by Arnold Nesselrath, Director of the Vatican Museum’s Department of Byzantine, Medieval and Modern Art.
