    Brunelleschi's Dome: How a Renaissance Genius Reinvented Architecture by Ross King

  • Michele EI

    Brunelleschi's Dome is a small gem. Author Ross King tells the story of the building of the dome atop Santa Marie del Fiore in Florence and along the way, treats you to a rich slice of Renaissance history.

    I really liked Ross King's book "Michelangelo and the Pope's Ceiling" so I'd like to read this as well.
