Item Details

This authoritative book is by an expert team of scholars, many of whom have made this field their life's work - Over 250 full-colour photographs, over half of which are full-page images and double-page spreads The Basilica of St. Mark's is the most important church in Venice, and one of the most famous in the world. It was built to house the body of St. Mark and is immediately adjacent to the Doge's palace. It was in support of this power and this authority that the Venetians built and decorated what is perhaps the most magnificent church in Christendom.
