The Palazzo Manca di Usini in Sassari, Sardinia

Burke, Juan Luis

The urban residential palace of the early modern period, as architectural typology, offers rich material for the study of urbanism and architecture across the Atlantic. Traditionally, the concept of the Renaissance palace evokes images of the Florentine palazzi, such as those of the Medici, Rucellai, Strozzi, and others. However, the urban palace is an architectural phenomenon found as much in Puebla, Cáceres, or Sassari as it is in in Florence, Rome, or Madrid.
