From his early essays to Interpreting the Renaissance (Yale UP; Harvard Graduate School of Design, 2006) Manfredo Tafuri’s scholarship consistently enacted a movement from the intrinsic formal properties of the individual architectural artifact to the vaster currents of history. In 1974, when his texts first appeared in English (in the journal Oppositions), a common tendency in the . was to interpret the architectural work as an expressive act directed to its immediate audience

Manfredo Tafuri (1935–1994) is acknowledged as one of Italy’s most influential architectural historians. In his final work, Interpreting the Renaissance, published here in English for the first time (the Italian edition, Ricerca del Rinascimento, appeared in 1992), Tafuri analyzes Renaissance architecture from a variety of perspectives, exploring questions that occupied him for over thirty years.  What theoretical terms were used to describe the humanist analogy between architecture and language? Is it possible to identify the political motivations behind the period’s new urban strategies? And how does humanism embody both an attachment to tradition and an urge to experiment?Tafuri studies the theory and practice of Renaissance architecture, offering new and compelling readings of its various social, intellectual and cultural contexts, while providing a broad understanding of uses of representation that shaped the entire era. He synthesizes the history of architectural ideas and projects through discussions of the great centers of architectural innovation in Italy (Florence, Rome, and Venice), key patrons from the middle of the fifteenth century (Pope Nicholas V) to the early sixteenth century (Pope Leo X), and crucial figures such as Leon Battista Alberti, Filippo Brunelleschi, Lorenzo de’ Medici, Raphael, Baldassare Castiglione, and Giulio Romano.A magnum opus by one of Europe’s finest scholars, Interpreting the Renaissance is an essential book for anyone interested in the architecture and culture of fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Italy.

Tafuri is a great historian, full of information, and with an understanding of the present, and its rootedness in what has come before, full of insight. Beautiful projects, well documented and some great floor plans throughout the book

I give 3 stars to this book is not because that it does not have the top quality. instead, i'm sure it is a solid piece inside-out.

The reason for it is because this book is not for every reader. It has gone too far for most of readers who mainly focus on architectural practice, and just want get to know renaissance or have some knowledge to show off. This topic will be too boring to attract your GF/BF.

The author, Tafuri, stood between architects and politicians as a history detective, track down the behind scene plot of renaissance history, introduce both an in-depth history research methodology and a new way to interpret the clues. The work bounds architecture with politics tightly, and it helps to understand even contemporary architecture trend. However, it requires a huge amount of Italian architecture, zoning and history background. I cannot recommend this book for the students as a start reading. It is an ocean for kids to learn swimming.
