The Renaissance home was an outward symbol of a family's status, wealth and erudition, and much care went into its arrangement and furnishing, and the art of household management. "Inside the Renaissance House" vividly conveys through contemporary illustrations and lively writing the realities of living in Florence and Venice during this innovative era, and takes the reader on a room-by-room tour.
From the sala, devoted to games, music and entertaining in style, to the bedchamber, which was far from the private space it is today, to the study, full of rare and precious objects, Elizabeth Currie reveals how life went on in each room.
