About this title

Synopsis:

Here, Eugenio Battisti, one of the world's leading experts on the history of Italian architecture, presents the work of Brunelleschi. Brunelleschi studied with passion the forms and technical processes of classical Roman architecture which, along with the invention of perspective, led him to found a rational method for measuring space and to seek an architecture in which each single part is harmoniously blended and in proportion with the whole. This rationalism is the foundation of his language, and marks the entire urban structure of Florence: the colonnade of the Ospedale degli Innocenti (Foundling Hospital), San Lorenzo and the Sacrestia Vecchia, the Chapel dei Pazzi, Santo Spirito, and above all, the ground-breaking solution to the dome of Stanta Maria del Fiore.

About the Author:

Eugenio Battisti (1924-1989) has been professor of Art History at the University in Genoa, at the Pennsylvania State University and at the University of North Carolina; and professor of Architecture History at the Milan, Rome and Florence University. He has published numerous book on Giotto, Cimabue, Brunelleschi, Piero della Francesca, Michelangelo and on Renaissance Art and Architecture.
