Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Tuscany: Vistas, Churches, Museums, Art, Villas & Gardens (Rizzoli, $98) Frescoes, too - they forget to mention those. This plump tomato-ripe, oversize volume features 400 delicious images and flip-out gatefolds of that majestic place that's always under the sun." ~Wall Street Journal
Christopher Schoppa
…bursting with eye-popping photos…Each year, amid the flurry of the season's lovely art books, two or three stand out as objects to covet. This one certainly qualifies.
—The Washington Post
