Week 9, Northern Italy and Venice!

Thanks to the printing press (and the Sack of Rome), Venice was able to join in the continuation of Renaissance architecture. I say thanks to the Sack, because several architects took refuge in Venice where jobs were still available, whereas other central cities could not offer commissions. The printing press allowed treatises written by Serlio to be distributed and the pupils of earlier architects continued to spead influence, Bramante for example. This week the focus is on archaelogical and antique influence and the Renaissance in Northern Italy.
