  • 192 PAGES

Designed in 1420 by Filippo Brunelleschi, the dome in Florence's cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is one of the great architectural feats. In this eminently readable book, Ross King tells the story of the design and construction of the dome, a tale rife with politics, cut-throat competition and mighty inspiration.  (ITL410, $16.00)
