Description: Villa I Tatti, near Florence, Italy, became the home of ar historians Bernard and Mary Berenson at the end of 1900. There they pursued their scholarly endeavors, and also entertained a remarkable circle of fellow intellectuals, writers, academics, and outstanding figures from all over Europe and America for nearly sis decaded. and decades. Bernard assembled a prodigious library and photo collection, while Mary, working with architects Geoffrey Scott and Cecil Pinsent, redesigned and rebuilt the house and laid out its elegant gardens.

When Bernard Berenson died in 1959, his will bequeathed the house, its contents, and the gardens to Harvard University, as a Center for Ranaissance Studies. This book documents and describes the intellectual atmosphere they fostered there, and the spirit that continues, strengthened by the Harvard Center

The lush illustrations include new color photographs of the Villa I Tatti, its grounds, and its superb art collection, comprising works by such Renaissance artists as Giotto, Venezian, and Lorenzo Lotto, among others. Black-and-white archival images of the Berensons and their friends are also featured.
