Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0262062100, Hardcover)This is the second of a three-volume set of the complete Sangallo workshop drawing collection housed at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence. Antonio da Sangallo the Younger (1484-1546) and his workshop were involved in St. Peter's, Palazzo Farnese, and Villa Madama in Rome; vast fortification projects in Castro, Florence, Perugia, and Rome; and dozens of other secular and religious buildings throughout Italy. After Bramante, it was the Sangallo workshop that most strongly influenced sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italian architecture. Andrea Palladio, Giacomo della Porta, Carlo Maderno, Francesco Borromini, and Gianlorenzo Bernini are among those indebted to him. In all of the projects touched by the Sangallo workshop, one senses an intense architectural laboratory in action.
Volume II focuses on Sangallo's ecclesiastical architecture, most notably St. Peter's in Rome. The book also includes material on the Pantheon, one of the key models for St. Peter's, where the workshop conducted much of its research into ancient architecture, as well as the drawings for the Villa Madama in Rome. An international team of scholars has written entries for the drawings. The volume includes an overview of the Sangallo workshop by Christoph Frommel and essays by Arnaldo Bruschi, Sabine Eiche, Manfredo Tafuri, and Christof Thoenes.
