Synopsis

This book offers a fresh approach to the study of Renaissance architecture and urban history by focussing on the imagery of the civic institutions of Bologna - those devoted to religion, government, law, commerce, welfare, and learning. The first part deals with the site and the urban determinants of the medieval city-state that constitute the structure of the future city. The second part concentrates on the forms of individual buildings as visual manifestations of the contemporary culture. Throughout, the author seeks to interpret the spirit that contributes to the particular beauty and configuration of the city.
