I like the idea of this book but as I got into the 5th chapter I realized that one really needs to have the internet handy to look up the art/architecture/sculptures they mention. Italian art and architecture was my favorite in art in school so some of the works I was familiar with but there were MANY that I didn't realize I didn't know...hence the reason to have the internet handy. At the time I didn't so I will have to tackle this one again in future. just the book and the internet and not 8 other books waiting to be read.
Very Interesting though
