Following up on his successful World Architecture Index (Greenwood Press, 1991), Edward Teague applies his research and organizational skills to provide detailed coverage and easy access to the wealth of architectural landmarks in Italy as illustrated in eighty books widely available in libraries. Citations are provided for illustrations of approximately 1,800 works of architecture, engineering, and planning representing most historic periods and styles from prehistoric times to the present. Included are details on exterior and interior views and plans, sections, and elevations. The Site Index organizes the works by location and indicates date, architect, and information on the illustrations with coded references to the reproduction sources. Alternative means of access are provided in the Architect, Chronological, Type, and Work indexes. A time-saver for researchers and scholars seeking to examine illustrations of specific buildings and monuments, this volume will also serve as a complete reference source for travelers, students, and other library patrons seeking clarification of names, locations, architects, dates, and types of architectural works in Italy.
