The volume is the first important monograph on the Cluniac Benedictine abbey of Badia a Settimo (Florence), reconstructing its history and its main artistic and architectonical features. Covering more than a millennium (a document dating to 1011 certifies the presence of a monastery founded by Count Lotario dei Cadolingi), the history of Badia a Settimo is related in particular to the city of Florence, with which it was tightly bound. From 1236, when the abbey passed to the Cistercians, the artistic taste opened up to Senese and French art, continuing the path of openness that already characterized the Pre-Romanesque period. The volume also provides a description of the artistic treasures of the Badia, such as the altar commissioned in 1639 to the Opificio delle Pietre Dure and Ghirlandaio s works, that make the abbey not only a local but also a worldwide patrimony.show more
