09 BORROMEO S Carlo Instructionum fabricaeBORROMEO, S. Carlo

Pontium, Milano, 1577

The first edition of the basic book for art and architecture history in the XVI Century.

With this very work, the spirit of Counter-Reformation deeply gets in the arts development, with results and influences ex-tending until now. With this work, still, the Church autority acquires the final power of aestetic judgement. See Paola Barocchi “Trattati d’arte del Cinquecento”, Federico Zeri, “Pittura e controriforma”, A. Blunt, “Artistic Theory in Italy, 1450-1600”, E. Battisti “Commentari, VII, 1956”, M. Tafuri, “L’architettura del manierismo”, J. Bury, “Renaissance Architectural Treatisesand Architectural Books”, E.C. Voelker,“Borromeo’s Influence on Sacred Art and Architecture”, in “San Carlo Borromeo”, ed. by J.M. Headly & J.B. Tomaro.
