This is the first English translation of Francesco Sansovino’s (1521–1586) celebrated guide to Venice, which was first published in 1561. One of the earliest books to describe the monuments of Venice for inquisitive travelers, Sansovino’s guide was written at a time when St. Mark’s Piazza was in the process of taking the form we see today. With in-depth descriptions of the buildings created by the author’s father, noted sculptor and architect Jacopo Sansovino (1486–1570), including the Mint, Library, and Loggetta, the volume presents a vivid portrait of Venice during a particularly rich moment in the city’s history. An engaging introduction and scholarly annotations to the original text provide the modern reader with an appreciation of the history of this great city as well as a practical guide for seeking out and enjoying its Renaissance treasures.
