September 1468 - Verrocchio is given the commission for the palla

to sit atop the lantern of Florence Cathedral

The palla was set in place in May 1471.

"Keep in mind how the ball of Santa Maria Fiore was soldered together in sections."

"ricordati delle saldature co che si saldo la palla di sca maria del fiore."

"The triangular sections of the said ball were of copper shaped over a stone."

"di rame inprotato i sasso chome li dessa palla."

Leonardo da Vinci, MS G. 84b (Institut de France)
