It was in fifteenth-century Florence that Brunelleschis buildings and Albertis treatise first established the principles of Italian Renaissance architecture in practice and theory. This classic survey of Italian Renaissance architecture ranges from the erection of Brunelleschis dome for the Florence Cathedral to the works of Bramante and Leonardo. This book was first published in 1974 as part one of a volume entitled Architecture in Italy, 1400-1600. Part two, by Heydenreichs pupil Wolfgang Lotz, is being reissued as a separate volume. Heydenreichs text is now accompanied by a critical introduction and updated bibliography by Paul Davies.
