Description:

Award-winning historian Kenneth R. Bartlett applies his decades of experience teaching the Italian Renaissance and leading tours across Italy to this new and beautifully illustrated overview, A Short History of the Italian Renaissance. Bartlett provides a lively cultural history that emphasizes many of the themes typically identified with the Italian Renaissance: the recovery of antiquity, the dignity of man, the state as a work of art, unbridled egoism, and naturalism.A Short History of the Italian Renaissance traces the roots of the Renaissance from Dante and Petrarch right through to the end of the period. The narrative is accompanied by 72 stunning colour illustrations, genealogies of the Aragon, Este, Gonzaga, Medici, Montefeltro, Sforza, and Visconti families, a map, a timeline of events, a bibliography, and an index.
