Surveying the physical evolution and enhancement of Florence from medieval republican times to the beginning of the 19th century, this study is part history, part guide and part celebration.
While discussing artefacts of many kinds - a cameo or reliquary no less than great buildings and other major works of art - it also considers some of the chief personalities who have contributed to the present-day physical appearance of the city.
