- About this book
An as yet unpublished outline of the writer and architect, lacking his normal curial clothing and depicted in his daily relationship with the Florentine world, amidst a variegated crowd of country folk and merchants, solicitors and lawyers, craftsmen and local priests. Fruit of a systematic investigation carried out in the Florentine archives the book illustrates many new documents on the life of G. B. Alberti and the 15th century history of his family, integrating and up dating all previous research on this topic.
