VERONA - ARTE, ARCHITECTURE AND LANDSCAPE
Verona, one of the great art cities of the Veneto and the fictio- nal meeting place of Juliet Capulet and Romeo Montague is known for its priceless artistic heritage from the Roman era. Here, Verona reveals astonishing treasures page after page. In addition to the famed Arena there are Gothic masterpieces, great Renaissance paintings, Baroque churches and frescoes, all the way up through the contemporary era and the genius of Carlo Scarpa, who performed a masterful and revolutionary restoration of Castel- vecchio. The city’s art and history offer a multi-faceted and splendid panorama over centuries, from the Roman era to the Scaliger court (acknowledged by Dante, Giotto and Petrarch) to the 15th century of Pisanello and Mantegna to the Renaissance of Sanmicheli to the great 18th-century teachings of Scipione Maffei. Nor are the provin- ce’s treasures, its numerous villas and enchanting countryside, ne- glected. This book guides readers through this rich history with text in both Italian and English and spectacular photographs. The result is a fascinating look at both well-known and lesser known events in a city that since Roman times has created and lived among art and continues to do so today.
