The book is the first to deal with Palazzo del Principe and its collections from a comprehensive point of view, encompassing architecture, frescoes and stucco, as well as paintings, tapestries and furniture (some of the works of art were brought back to Genoa in recent years from the Roman palace of the Doria Pamphilj family, after archival researches demonstrated their provenance from the Genoese palace). While Andrea Doria’s patronage remains absolutely central , with special reference to Perino del Vaga’s 1529-1533 influential decorative cycle (partially restored prior to publication of the volume), a fair amount of attention has been focused on the much less investigated role of his successors, such as his heir Giovanni Andrea I, for whom artists such as Luca Cambiaso worked, and Giovanni Andrea III, who commissioned important works of art - many of them still on display in the palace - to masters of the Genoese Baroque such as Domenico Piola and Filippo Parodi. The time span covered by the book extends from the mid Quattrocento – in relation to the two Tournai-woven “Alexander the Great” tapestries” – to the 19th century, when the palace and especially its gardens underwent significant transformations.

Abstract

The book is the first to deal with Palazzo del Principe and its collections from a comprehensive point of view, encompassing architecture, frescoes and stucco, as well as paintings, tapestries and furniture (some of the works of art were brought back to Genoa in recent years from the Roman palace of the Doria Pamphilj family, after archival researches demonstrated their provenance from the Genoese palace). While Andrea Doria’s patronage remains absolutely central , with special reference to Perino del Vaga’s 1529-1533 influential decorative cycle (partially restored prior to publication of the volume), a fair amount of attention has been focused on the much less investigated role of his successors, such as his heir Giovanni Andrea I, for whom artists such as Luca Cambiaso worked, and Giovanni Andrea III, who commissioned important works of art - many of them still on display in the palace - to masters of the Genoese Baroque such as Domenico Piola and Filippo Parodi. The time span covered by the book extends from the mid Quattrocento – in relation to the two Tournai-woven “Alexander the Great” tapestries” – to the 19th century, when the palace and especially its gardens underwent significant transformations.
