Architecture since 1400

This chapter discusses how the Renaissance expanded to serve the needs of two different sets of elite patrons in two different regions of Italy. In Rome, the Renaissance served the papal court; in the Veneto it was embraced by the local equivalent of the elite families whom, in Florence during the same years, Cosimo was squeezing out of the political process. In both cases, it remained the province of an intellectual, political, and economic elite, that proved adaptable to existing and emerging circumstances. At the same time that revived classicism was transforming the appearance of Italy’s leading cities and their hinterlands, it was also being disseminated across Europe and its colonies, changing in the process to suit far more alien climates and situations.
