Clarity, linearity, nearly geometric rigor: the architectural works of a great eclectic talent of the 1400s.
[Francesco di Giorgio architect]. Edited by two of the leading experts on architectural history, the book on the architectural activity of Francesco di Giorgio Martini is destined to remain an indispensable point of reference for studies on this great master,
an eclectic artist who worked in the field of architecture, but also illumination of manuscripts, painting and sculpture. The volume is organized with a series of essays on the central themes of the art of Francesco, from the religious architecture to the civil and military works, followed by historical profiles of all the works, from the Ducal Palaces of Urbino and Gubbio to the cathedral of Urbino, the fortifications at Santa Maria delle Grazie to Santa Maria del Calcinaio in Cortona, the Palazzo della Signoria di Jesi, the monastery of Santa Chiara in Urbino to the Rocca Roveresca of Mondavio. A section is also devoted to the theoretical works and critical fortunes of the architect.
