about this item

This book details the history of the beautiful Fonte Gaia in Siena, Italy. Created in the fifteenth century, the fountain was eventually replaced by a copy in the nineteenth century—a copy which itself is now old enough to need preservation. This book looks at the Italian Renaissance through the fate of the fountain, showing how both the Risorgimento and Purism have shaped our perceptions of the period and its art.
