The Design and Construction of the Dome above Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy

Picture

This blog is an attempt to explain my fascination with this dome's history and construction.  I think it is arguably the most amazing structure ever built because I know of no other structure that required as much courage and genius to construct.

Below I will present an essay explaining the history behind the construction of this dome, and I will also discuss some of the technology behind the work.

I hope that others can contribute to this with their stories, opinions and knowledge of the building.  I have found that the more I learn about this dome the more intriguing it becomes.
