Introduction by Carlo Sisi
Martina Ingendaay

The end of the Medici family in 1737, gave to the Florentine aristocratic families the opportunity to take a leading role in the promotion of arts. Thank's to the capillary study of the marquis Gerini family archives, the Author traces out the history of four generations of patrons and collectors. She also analyzes the buying, the commissioning and the strategies of the marquis Gerini. It's left wide space to the illustrated catalogue of the collection. In appendix: bibliography and index of names.
