About the Author

Christoph Luitpold Frommel was born in 1933 and has held academic posts in Germany (Bonn University), the USA (Institute of Advanced Study, Princeton, and University of California, Berkeley) and Italy (La Sapienza, Rome). He was Director of the Bibliotheca Herziana, Rome, from 1980 to 2001.


'Rare is the perfect book, but for Christoph Frommel's The Architecture of the Italian Renaissance, no other adjective will do ... He proffers extraordinary levels of perception and interpretation ... his language invariably precise and simple ... with his eye we shall learn to look at architecture rather than just see it' - Brian Sewell, Evening Standard
'The selection of architects and projects seems balanced and comprehensive, and the scholarship impeccable' - The Times Literary Supplement
