Villas of Lucca. These jewels of the Lucca countryside represent the tropes of work and play that Lucca society brought to country living from the medieval period to the 19th century: from seats of local government to state residences, from pleasure destinations to locations of artistic experimentation. The book covers a wide range of themes, images, and reflections on architecture, society, economics and markets, culture, and family history.
