From the dust jacket: This volume "is the first to trace the complete process of creating important buildings, from the earliest conception in the minds of the patrons - the Venetian state of other institutional patrons - through the choice of architect, the employment of craftsmen, the selection of materials, and the working conditions on the site. In an interesting analysis of the participants' roles, Goy highlights the emerging importance of the superintending master, the protomaestro."
