Yet the elegance of the building belies the tremendous labour technical ingenuity and bitter personal strife involved in its creation. For over a century after work on the cathedral began in 1296 the proposed dome was regarded as all but impossible to build because of its enormous size. The greatest architectural puzzle of its age when finally completed in 1436 the dome was hailed as one of the great wonders of the world. It has gone down in history as a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. This book tells the extraordinary story of how the cupola was raised and of the dome's architect the brilliant and volatile Filippo Brunelleschi. Denounced as a madman at the start of his labours he was celebrated at their end as a great genius. His life was one of ambition ingenuity rivalry and intrigue - a human drama set against the plagues wars political feuds and intellectual ferments of Renaissance Florence the glorious era for which the dome remains the most compelling symbol.Brunelleschi's Dome was voted Non-Fiction Book of the Year by American Independent Booksellers. Biografía del autor Ross King is the author of the highly praised Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling and Brunelleschi's Dome a celebrated account of how the Renaissance architect Brunelleschi constructed the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. He has also written two novels Domino and Ex Libris. He lives in Oxford.
