Über diesen Titel


'Goy covers not just the architecture but also the background conditions to its creation - political, economic and social. All the major public buildings are here and most of the significant lesser ones ... illustrated with photos that are alluring without being flashy. And as with all the best books of this kind, it certainly makes one want to head off to see, or re-see, the place for oneself.' (World of Interiors) 'Glossy and coffee-table size, but informative and thorough, Goy's guide gives a brisk history of the city, and looks at the major monuments with concise descriptions, fine photographs and proper drawings.' (The Architectural Review) 'Richard Goy has a storyteller's tallent. He can condense complicated ideas and tortuous events into clear, simple and entertaining prose ... Goy manages to convey - along with the history and the details of Florence - a sense of the wonder the city inspires. And like its subject, the book is sumptuous, beautifully designed ... and for many, irresistable.' (The Sunday Times) 'Richard Goy's excellent book concentrates on its [i.e. Florence's] visual splendour ... Throughout Goy's text is sober and scholarly, while also remaining accessible to the general reader. The illustrations are lavish ... ' (Art Quarterly) 'Richard Goy's book ... can be stronly recommended as preparatory reading for a visit. Goy's aim is to fuse together an urban history or the city with an account of its architecture up to the present day, pointing out that few studies of this kind exist, even in Italian. His text is long and well informed ... Phaidon, as usual, has packaged his words beautifully, with hundreds of well-chosen illustrations, beautifully reproduced, including a good number of plans and sections. Even those who think they know Florence may well find new sights to discover ... ' (Architect's Journal)
