The facades of the great palazzos of 15th- to 17th-century Florence were once splendid with animated and colourful painted and sgrafittoed decoration. Richly illustrated with photographs by Antonio Quattrone, this volume catalogues the surviving examples, examining in detail the composition and iconography of the painted buildings. In Part II, Pecchioli presents the first study devoted to the recovery of the painted city in the neo-Renaissance revivals of 19th- and early 20th-century Florence.
