  1. 1. March 1442 VOL 9 ISSUE 11 Filippo Brunelleschi “Do something original in life, because no matter how long it takes or how difficult, it has the possibility of changing the world.”I am Filippo Brunelleschi, one of the greatest To fully explain the dome I have created, I mustmen in the Renaissance. Nobody can refute tell you of my past. I was born in 1337 and whenthis, for I have completed one of the most I was young, I was originally apprenticed to adifficult challenges in the world and in my goldsmith, and eventually became a creditedcareer. This challenge would be the dome of goldsmith myself. Soon after this, I spent tenthe Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore (the ca- years in Rome to study the architecture there.thedral of Florence. This is the crown jewel This is truly when I began to appreciate classicalof my achievements, which also includes the architecture and when I became architect of latercreation of linear perspective and the intro- buildings, I built these buildings in the classicalduction of classical architecture to the Ren- style. This includes the dome of the Basilica diaissance. Santa Maria del Fiore as well as San Lorenzo and the Pazzi Chapel. Filippo Brunelleschi Linear Perspective Page 1
  2. 2. Filippo Brunelleschi, Continued The dome itself had been very difficult to build. I had to create a completely new method to build it, but luckily for me, by looking into the past (the Pantheon) I managed to get some Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore helpful hints. Personally though, I had been under enormous amounts of pressure because if I had failed, my reputation would be ruined and I had to sacrifice sixteen years of my life on this single project. However in the end, I succeeded in building this behemoth piece of architecture and its shadow covers all of Flor- ence.The view of the dome from within the cathedral I believe that the dome of Florence has influ- enced people, beyond architecture. Many peo- ple said it was impossible to build a dome that size and magnitude. But I didn’t and I suc- ceeded. I looked into the past to help me. I be- lieve that this “impossible” feat, has shown others that what is impossible to one, is possi- ble to another and that we can learn from the past. The Pantheon Dome INTERESTING FACTS:  I am friends with Donatello.  I am the son of a notary.  I had to build the entire dome without scaffolding. Page 2
