Books: Palazzi Of Rome: Splendor and Pride

by - 10:17:00 PM

Carlo Cresti created the perfect guide of Rome's palaces and amazing villas. This is a perfect table book and also a great gift, but for Rome lovers this is as close to a Bible as you can get. I encourage you to purchase it and fully enjoy it. It sure brought me much needed happiness and hours of delightful lecture. 

Palazzi of Rome presents the most magnificent Roman villas and palaces. Brilliant photographs capture the atmosphere of the buildings in their full grandeur and exquisiteness. 

They lead readers past decorated façades and guide them through elegant halls and artfully arranged gardens. The texts explain how closely the history of the famed dynasties - the Borgheses, Farneses, Colonnas, Corsinis and other old families - is intertwined with their ancestral seats, and how for centuries the higher Roman nobility designed their palaces in the City of Cities as fitting reflections of their own glory.
