Description
Tuscany is everyones dreama land of picturesque landscapes, fabulous food, and above all, extraordinary masterpieces of art of every kind.

Focusing on a series of Tuscan centers, from the Etruscan capitals of Cerveteri and Tarquinia to the great medieval and Renaissance city-states of Lucca, Pisa, Siena, and Florence down to the present day, Marina Belozerskaya leads the reader on a journey through the arts of this astonishing part of Italy. Unlike other books on Tuscany, this one spans time, geography, and a wide variety of art formsfrom Etruscan bronzes to Ferragamo shoesand shows how the arts of this fertile region have sprung from their native soil over the centuries, each era providing the foundation for the next.

Lavishly illustrated, and rich with the fascinating stories of Tuscan arts and their creators, The Arts of Tuscany offers an enchanting new look into the opulent culture of a beloved part of the world.
