New Publication: Venetian and Ottoman Heritage in the Aegean: The Bailo House in Chalcis, Greece, edited by Nikos Kontogiannis & Stefania Skartsis

This book tells the astonishing story of a secular building and its inhabitants over six centuries and four successive civilizations.

Italian designs were followed and copied in the style of the lagoon’s palaces, digging the foundations through the earlier Byzantine layers.
