'Reflecting Deborah Howard's own scholarly signature, this volume brings different fields of research -architecture, urban planning, landscape, art, music, politics, religion, society, and gender- into fruitful discussion. The essays collected here testify to the profound influence of Howard's work on our understanding of architecture in Venice and its empire. Furthermore, they re-interrogate the complex issues that lie at the heart of her writings: interactions of power and culture, of arts and politics, of the transmission of ideas to and from Venice.' Giorgio Gianighian, Universita IUAV di Venezia, Italy
'This is a highly stimulating collection of varied papers, beautifully produced - an entirely appropriate tribute.' Renaissance Quarterly
'Overall the collection is a fine testament to Howard's impact in the field, and is not the only one. Another set of essays in her honor, Artistic Practices and Cultural Transfer in Early Modern Italy: Essays in Honour of Deborah Howard, was recently published by Ashgate (2015). Howard, a towering figure in the field, deserves all this recognition and more.' CAA reviews
'...focuses on monuments, places and patrons with a strong emphasis on architectural history in which Palladio plays the leading role.' Beverly Louise Brown, The Burlington Magazine
