Illustrated by spectacular images, which are the result of a special photographic campaign conducted by Massimo Listri, this volume documents the architecture and rich artistic treasures of the famous residence, which is the only example in the Trentino region of a suburban villa from the Council period of the mid-16th century characterized by a portico and loggia arrangement, typical of Veronese architecture of the time. Inside the villa, Italian, Flemish, and German artists created frescoed decorations of the highest quality, including the cycle of 12 frescoes dedicated to the victories of Charles V, those depicting episodes from the Old and New Testaments, and those depicting the 12 months of the year.
Alongside these extraordinary frescos, the book presents sculptures and furniture, mainly from the Flemish and German area, and wooden metopes painted with grotesques and male and female portraits that can be traced back to specialists in this type of decoration, influenced by the engraving art of the time.
A stunning photographic book on the splendid 16th-century residence restored to its original splendour. Michelangelo Lupo is an architect specialized in Art History. Former director of the Museo del Castello del Buonconsiglio in Trento, he has been working for a long period in the field of architectural restoration in Egypt, Libya, Jordan, and Algeria. Massimo Listri, a master of architectural and environmental photography, has published over 70 books with the most prestigious publishers in Europe and the United States.
