Cortona in Context: The History and Architecture of an Italian Hill Town to the 17th Century

If you're English-speaking and want to know more about Cortona, the options can be frustrating. Only guidebooks, some paragraphs in general sources, and this author's article in Macmillan's 1992 "Dictionary of Art and Architecture" offer opportunities. That scarcity prompted Philancy Holder to Write "Cortona in Context". Tuscan libraries provided rich insights into what made Cortona look like it does and 20 years experience as an art historian suggested methods to arrive at observations and conclusions about the city's architectural heritage.
