Arts of Tuscany: From the Etruscans to Ferragamo Summary


Arts of Tuscany: From the Etruscans to Ferragamo by Marina Belozerskaya

"Lovers of Tuscany" will delight in Marina Belozerskaya's art tour of the Italian provinces of Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca. Spanning time, geography and a wide variety of art forms - from Etruscan bronzes to Ferragamo shoes - she shows how art blossomed in the Tuscan landscape that has beguiled millions of visitors. Belozerskaya takes the reader on a journey through the arts of Tuscany as they grew and evolved over the centuries, each era providing substance for the next. As she says in her introduction: 'I hope that the broad chronological range of the book will introduce you to new treasures, spur you to go to Tuscany, whether for the first time or the seventh, to experience its magic, and to compose another list of favourites that you, like me, will then return again and again to expand and revise'.This profusely illustrated volume offers both popular art history (with some of the greatest art ever made) along with an opportunity to have a deeper involvement with one of the most beloved travel destinations in the world today.
