This is one of the finest books I have ever read. The author demonstrates an erudition based on many years of research, yet he writes with great clarity. It is very pleasing that the text aligns with the illustrations.

Everything it promises to be! 4 Nov. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
As an art history major who lived and studied in Italy, and saw this magnificent church before the earthquake, this book provides an excellent history. How wonderful to have photographic evidence of it's prior beauty, and the video clips of the destruction. I visited the church again this October (1998), and it was so wonderful to see the careful restoration. This book will not dissapoint those of you who want photographic history.
