Abstract:

"Of the many splendid buildings built during the Renaissance, the Duomo, or Cathedral of Florence, is the most famous. But for many years, it stood incomplete. No one knew how to build such a large dome! Towering over the city the cathedral stood, waiting for Filippo. This is the story of the man who forever changed the face of architecture. He was the sculptor, engineer, and architect, Filippo Brunelleschi. Readers young and old will delight in the glorious color and rich details of Florentine life as they follow Filippo through his apprenticeship and watch him develop as the father of Renaissance architecture."--Page 4 of cover.
