By: Emily Stevens


Background
Background

  • Florence, Italy is where Filippo Brunelleschi was born and raised.

  • His father was a lawyer, and made sure his son had the appropriate education to become a lawyer.

Beginnings
Beginnings

  • After entering a contest to design bronze doors and losing, Brunelleschi angrily left the city.

  • From there, he went to Rome and worked with a sculptor named Donatello.

  • Eventually, Brunelleschi returned to Florence.

  • When he got back, a church needed a dome to be designed and constructed.

  • The dome that was needed had never been built before, but Brunelleschi was up for the challenge.


This is a stained glass window inside the Pazzi Chapel. It reflects that stained glass windows were very popular during the Renaissance period.


Jobs

  • Brunelleschi worked with the Medici on many different projects.

  • Since he had such an interest an Ancient Rome, he used pillars in his work.

  • After completing many different tasks, he still strived for the job to build the dome for the cathedral.

  • There was not enough wood nearby for the cathedral, so he thought of something brand new.

  • He worked very hard on the job and after 16 years, he successfully completed the task.


The OspedaleDegliInnocenti was a children’s hospital. It differed from most of Brunelleschi’s works because the others were churches.


Contributions
Contributions

  • Brunelleschi brought many new ideas into architecture and even engineering.

  • So many buildings in Florence were designed by Brunelleschi, and it would not be the same without him.
