In the course of his long career, Baldassare Longhena (1598-1682) was responsible for many of Venice's most impressive landmarks, including the great basilica of the Salute. This lucid and thought-provoking survey examines the whole of his vast output: churches, palaces on the Grand Canal, monumental staircases and libraries, and buildings for the city's Greek and Jewish communities. Illustrated with more than 60 colour and 300 black-and-white photographs, this magnificent volume includes a complete list of all Longhena's work.
