    Until its conquest by Napoleon in 1797, Venice was not only a great maritime trading power, but controlled a substantial swath of the Italian mainland: the Veneto. After a general historical introduction, this magnificent volume takes the reader on a chronological tour of 28 of the lavish villas built by the city's patricians in Verona, Padua and other mainland cities. Lavishly illustrated with colour photographs, it offers an unparalleled overview of the evolution of art and architecture over five centuries.
