It was in fifteenth-century Florence that Brunelleschi`s buildings and Alberti`s treatise first established the principles of Italian Renaissance architecture in practice and theory. This classic survey of Italian Renaissance architecture ranges from the erection of Brunelleschi`s dome for the Florence Cathedral to the works of Bramante and Leonardo. This book was first published in 1974 as part one of a volume entitled Architecture in Italy, 1400-1600. Part two, by Heydenreich`s pupil Wolfgang Lotz, is being reissued as a separate volume. Heydenreich`s text is now accompanied by a critical introduction and updated bibliography by Paul Davies.

Ludwig H. Heydenreich was emeritus professor at the University of Munich. Paul Davies is lecturer in the history of art and architecture, University of Reading.Yale University Press Pelican History of Art

"Essentially what we have is a glamorous reprint of a classic text, with an extremely useful introduction to each volume setting out important new approaches and research undertaken in the twenty years since the book was published, together with an additional up-to-date bibliography, which means it still remains the best account of the subject."—Andrew Hopkins, Sixteenth Century Journal

"A definitive guide to the phenomenal architecture of Italy 1400-1600."—The Architect

"Readable, informative. . . . [The book is written by two] distinguished historians, specialists not only in the period but in the art of impeccable and authoritative analytical writing."—Denys Hinton, Connoisseur
