Ross King – Brunelleschi’s Dome: one of the most popular books on the Dome. It offers a detailed description of construction techniques and of the deeds of Brunelleschi. Tim Parks – Medici Money – (Atlas Books, 2005) Evoking the richness of the Florentine Renaissance and the Medici’s glittering circle, replete with artists, popes, and kings, Medici Money is a look into the origins of modern banking and its troubled relationship with art and religion. Christopher Hibbert – The House of Medici – Its Rise & Fall. and for booklovers . Tuscany and Siena (Non-Fiction). A Thousand Days in Tuscany – Marlena de Blasi.

Florence has for centuries attracted writers, bewitched by the beauty of its surroundings, the quality of its light, and the treasures it houses in its palaces, churches and museums. These literati have also attracted one another - Florence has long been the centre of a colourful expatriate community comprising writers as various as Walter Savage Landor, the eccentric Ouida, Dostoevsky, Norman Douglas and the Sitwells. The author lived there for a while, and here he paints a portrait of that world, rife with feuds and rivalries, impermanent but never dull. And he distils the comments of its literary denizens to guide us around the city itself, to point out where they lived and what they made of it, and to evoke its churches and cafes, villas and gardens.
Great book! This finished my collection of this series. I have been looking for this book for several years and I found it on Amazon.
The book is great exactly what I was looking for. I had almost all the Books in the Wonders of Man Series, but, not this one.
Great book!!!
