"Always fascinating... The reader will get from Goldthwaite's book on the economics of architecture a more lively and more authentic impression of life in Renaissance Florence than from many more general descriptions of Florentine culture." — Felix Gilbert, New York Review of Books.
By examining the microcosm of a single vital industry -- construction -- this award winning book develops a complete picture of fifteenth century Florentine society in dynamic transformation.
