Another fantastic dome, great example of Renaissance in Milan at the time of the Sforza, 15th century. Clearly the architect got inspiration from Brunelleschi, "il Brunelleschi", the first great architect of Renaissance in Florence. Milan, Sant' Eustorgio, cappella Portinari. Esempio della perfezione rinascimentale. Questo rinascimento lombardo si ispira chiaramente alla Sagrestia Vecchia, San Lorenzo, Firenze, di Brunelleschi. www.linguacultura.be
Around the year Rome was no longer considered a city. It was considered the whole civilized world and everyone else was a barbarian. They no longer believe this, thank goodness, but there are so many well preserved structures from that time.
