Villa I Tatti Series

World

In the past fifty years, Villa I Tatti has become a powerhouse of scholarly production on all aspects of Renaissance studies, and Bernard Berenson: Formation and Heritage celebrates this achievement by examining the founder’s intellectual achievements. Thoughtfully edited by Joseph Connors and Louis Waldman, the book stems from a conference held at I Tatti in 2009, and the range of papers published here is a testimony to the enduring fascination with Berenson.—Bruce Boucher, The Times Literary Supplement
