Synopsis:

The floating city of Venice has enchanted visitors for centuries with its maze of scenic canals. For this pioneering book, Daniel Savoy set out by boat to explore the built environment of these waterways, gaining new insights into the architectural history of this major early modern Italian center. By viewing the architecture and experience of the canals in relation to the production of Venetian civic mythology, the author found that the waterways of Venice and its lagoon were integral areas of the city's pre-modern urban space, and that their flanking buildings were constructed in an intimate dialogue with the water's visual, spatial, and metaphorical properties.

Enhancing the natural wonder of their aquatic setting, the builders of Venice used illusory aesthetic and scenographic practices to create waterfront buildings that appear to float, blend into the water, and glide into view around bends in the canals—transporting visitors into a seemingly otherworldly realm. This book's striking photographs of Venice, as seen from its waterways, will likewise transport readers with breathtaking views of this captivating city.

About the Author: Daniel Savoy is an assistant professor of art history at Manhattan College.

Book Description Yale UP, 2012. Book Condition: New. Renaissance travellers would arrive in Venice weary and sore from a long carriage ride over bumpy roads to find themselves transported with silken smoothness by gondola to an ethereal island metropolis. Illustrated with almost 200 colour photographs, engravings, maps, and paintings by artists from Carpaccio to Monet, this elegant volume explores the city's unique relationship with its lagoon, its use of water as architectural space reflecting the facades of its grand buildings, and its carefully nurtured mystique.

Book Description Die Lagunenstadt Venedig begeistert Besucher seit Jahrhunderten nicht zuletzt wegen ihrer malerischen Kanäle. Der Autor dieses Buches machte sich mit dem Boot auf, um die Architekturen am Wasser zu studieren, so dass insgesamt neue Einblicke in die Baugeschichte dieser frühmodernen italienischen Metropole möglich werden. Setzt man die Bauten in Beziehung zu den Kanälen, wird ein spezifischer Dialog sichtbar mit den visuellen, räumlichen und metaphorischen Aspekten des Wassers. Die Erbauer von Venedig schufen eine illusionistische Ästhetik und begriffen die Fassaden als Bühne, um Bauten zu erschaffen, die zu fließen und sich mit dem Wasser zu vermengen scheinen, um den Besucher geradezu in eine andere, märchenhafte Welt zu versetzen. Atemberaubende Blicke auf Venedig vom Wasser aus ermöglicht dieser Band! (Text engl., Yale) 23,5 x 29,5 cm, 224 S., zahlreiche farb. und s/w-Abb., geb. Bookseller Inventory # 768103
