Tjis book offers an engaging and original perspective on the private lives and material culture of aristocratic families in sixteenth-century Venice. Distinguished art historian Patricia Fortini Brown takes us behind the elegant, closed doors of grand palaces built along the Venetian canals – the homes of families who wished to live in a noble manner. She examines the roles of both fine and applied arts in family life as well as the public messages that these impressive homes conveyed.
