The new volume in the series on Italian furnishings is on the Rococo style, and includes many pieces not published elsewhere.
[Rococo furniture in Italy. Interior furnishings and decorations from 1738 to 1775]. The new volume in the series on Italian furnishings investigates the Rococo style, initially imported from France, but then independently developed in Italy along very interesting lines. The period examined begins in 1730 and concludes in 1780, with the advent of neoclassicism. The book is organized with an introduction and about one hundred historical-critical profiles, subdivided by geographical area: Sicily, Naples, Rome and the Papal State, Tuscany, Liguria, Modena and Parma, the Veneto, Lombardy and Piedmont. The illustrations, specially created for this volume, include many pieces never before published. An indispensable tool for dealers, auction houses and collectors.
