This classic work presents a survey of Italian Renaissance architecture in the Cinquecento. It discusses the work of Bramante, Giulio Romano, Michelangelo, and Palladio, among others, as well as the various centers of architectural activity throughout Italy. This book was first published in 1974 as part two of a volume entitled Architecture in Italy, 1400-1600. Part one, by Ludwig Heydenreich, is being reissued as a separate volume. Lotzs text is now accompanied by a critical introduction and updated bibliography by Deborah Howard, who assesses Lotzs standing as an architectural historian and surveys the developments in the discipline and the new material published since the first edition.
