Vast parks and game reserves, sumptuous villas-nothing was too magnificent for the papal summer retreats, built to escape the stiffling heat of the Eternal City. Hidden away behind the often austere facades of these palaces lies the most rodigious of Roman heritages-frescos, sculpture, paintings, furniture, artistically laid out gardens-jealously guarded by the great families who laid the fortune of the city: the Orsini, Colonna, Farnese, Medicis and others. In this companion volume to their villas and Garden of Tuscany, author Sophie Bajard and photographer Rafaello Bencini have once again pooled their talents to reveal the splendour of Rome's treaures and to recount the fascinating story of its prestigious palaces.Edition: First edition
