After discussing in general the Roman nobility's desire to build ever more sumptuous houses, the urban setting of the palazzi and their lavish interior decoration, the authors describe the history and architecture of 30 of Rome's finest examples. Massimo Listri's outstanding colour photographs of the buildings include details of their interiors and artworks, and there are reproductions of masterpieces such as Raphael's La Fornarina in Palazzo Barberini and Caravaggio's Rest on the Flight into Egypt in Palazzo Doria Pamphilj.
