2006 / 359 PAGES.
Entrusted to the monastic order of the Carthusians, the great Certosa di Parma houses extraordinary panoramic views and unexpected details, from Gothic-inspired forms to Renaissance decorative elements, from the magnificent inlays of the wooden choir to the terracotta cloister decorations all the way down to the funerary monuments to Gian Galeazzo Visconti and to Ludovico il Moro and Isabella d’Este. This book describes them by means of a vast photo apparatus enhanced by contributions by scholars and art historians.
Don’t miss this chance to savour the beauty of this monastery, which has remained basically intact despite the vicissitudes of the past 200 years.
