The volume collects a series of essays, written by some of the greatest scholars of Renaissance architecture, on the villas of the Casa d’Este built between the 1400s and 1500s, the so-called «delights». These were palaces of proverbial magnificence (but at the same time centres of government and farming), destroyed by neglect and various demolitions, whose history and outstanding originality are reconstructed here for the first time within the Italian and European context.
