Marc’Antonio Barbaro (1518–1595) was one of Venice’s most prominent statesmen, a dedicated servant of the Republic and a gifted and experienced amateur in architecture, entrusted with overseeing the construction of the fortified town of Palmanova. Through a study of Barbaro’s career, this richly illustrated volume examines the architectural debates and controversies among the nobility of 15th-century Venice and the ‘complex dialectic between theory and practice, between utopias and reality, and between design and technology’.
