A collection of writings by C.L. Frommel on the work of Bramante, Raphael, Michelangelo, Peruzzi, Antonio da Sangallo il Giovane at the papal court in the Renaissance.
[Architecture at the papal court in the Renaissance]. The thorough collection of essays gathered in this volume takes an original, methodologically rigorous approach to the complex theme of architecture at the papal court in the Renaissance: from the building policies of the popes to the restructuring of the Vatican Palace, to the design issues of monumental papal tombs and the “rebirth of antiquity” in the “Nymphaeum” of Genazzano and the Belvedere Courtyard. The book also examines the medieval legacy in the architectural works of Bramante, the early works of Baldassarre Peruzzi, the luxury of the buildings by Raphael, and investigates the relationship between theory and practice in the Ionic portal.
