The Hidden TreasuresBook - 2002
For those wanting to explore Italy's rich artistic heritage beyond the usual tourist attractions, this unique guide is the answer. Presented are the more authentic, less-crowded locations and works, including tapestries, paintings, sculptures, and gardens, that are often the favourites of Italian art connoisseurs. An introduction to the huge 'Tapestries of the Month' in Milan, which occupy an entire banquet room of the Castello Sforzesco; the vibrant and surreal 'Dante Room' at the Casino Massimo, Rome; the Ancient Instruments Collection; and many other hidden treasures set this true art-lover's guide apart from the many guidebooks that cover the usual well-worn attractions.
