Quednau believes that there was a detailed written program, but is not convinced by the two names that have been advanced, previously for its author, that is, Paolo Giovio or Giles of, Viterbo. In what is the most valuable section of the book, Quednau, first turns his attention to the iconography of the cycle of eight, early popes, who are all seated under baldachins, dressed in full, pontificals, and flanked by sanctifying angels and character-, defining virtues.

Or take the famous castello, or crane, of 1423, which, it had, been assumed in the past by everyone (including Saalman), was. The, stone rings, for example, are sometimes cited as examples of, structural ingenuity but, as Saalman observes, the lowest of, these is interrupted at four points and, because they are not in, tension, the rings "were and are, from a present-day point of, view, quite useless in containing stresses while adding poten-, tially harmful dead weight to the structure" (p. 88).

Probably near the end of phase, three, although possibly at the beginning of phase four, there, was a change of program, when the Baptism of Constantine and, the Donation were substituted for the Presentation of Prisoners. At the same time he started to learn the business of construction as overseer ( provveditore) of the accounts for the construction of the Villa Imperiale in Pesaro. A fifth chapter is devoted to "Building Machines." Initially his activities were not exclusively architectural or military: he was one of those clever pairs of eyes and ears on which Cosimo depended for information about the defenses in his own territory and the plans of his enemies. In fact, because of the complexity of the program, he.

The impact on the project was reduced scope (30 × 42 meter scaffolding tower), and costs (timber was imported and expensive in vast quantities. Because these documents speak of a, "novo et ultimo modello," earlier scholars, from Fabriczy to Bat-, tisti, had assumed that these payments referred to a completely, new cupola model.

Belluzzi's manuscript documents a well-known practice about which architects, in their printed treatises, had generally been relatively silent. In 1980 the Italian architectural historian Daniela Lamberini published a transcription of a remarkable manuscript, Il trattato delle fortificazioni in terra, a study of earthworks in military architecture by Giovan Battista Belluzzi (1506-54). jpg.

He ingratiated himself with Ascanio Colonna and by the summer had evidently developed political skills that allowed him to have airs above his station. The, best known is of course the initial model competition of 1417-18, (with centering structures and working platforms), but there, were other challenges, sometimes less formal in nature, which, brought forth other alternatives to Brunelleschi's designs. Chapter two, "Santa Maria del Fiore: Before the Cupola," is, a reproduction of Saalman's article of 1964 ("Santa Maria del, Fiore: 1294-1418," Art Bulletin, XLVI, 1964, 471-500); a final sec-, tion, previously unpublished, deals with the octagon arm vaults, and takes the study from the horizontal problems of the plan to, the vertical issues of the cupola. Not, one supposes, that the book is much different, than the one planned twenty years ago, but it is unfortunate that, Mainstone's contribution had to be acknowledged by extensive, quotations and summaries of his two valuable articles.3 Still, in. Elements that have been continuously linked with each other by the 3D virtual models of Renaissance machinery, which have been used as sketchbooks on which both technicians and histo- ians recorded every step of their work, making it immediately available for the others in a common and easy to understand language. Saalman advises us that this point is un-, supported in the documents, which is true enough, but docu-, ments do not tell all. Saalman's review of the opera books in Florence has simply, turned up no documentary evidence for the work. For the next ten years Belluzzi, alone or with the advice of others, evaluated the city walls of the smaller towns of Tuscany, reporting on their status to Cosimo and, when funds and circumstances allowed, repairing or updating them to meet the potential threats of the new cannon.

Here, it seems, is all one might ever want to know about Belluzzi. Year: 2014. Even if it lacks the canonical stylistic qualities of the, so-called "first-Renaissance-building," an honor reserved for the, Hospital of the Innocents, it makes up for it by being a symbol of, Renaissance ambition, technical achievement, and intellectual, imagination. Few books about single buildings of such complex-, ity have attempted so much. But while the Cathedral was generally, reckoned a failure, a dreary and depressing work, the cupola was, something else again. The interruption of the stone chain at, the lowest level is of no great significance since the curve does. Caspar Walter and the Grubenmann brothers in Switzerland). Battista d'An-, tonio, for example, the capomaestro first appreciated by, Fabriczy, is discussed extensively by Saalman.

As Saalman makes abundantly clear in this, book, the committee followed the same procedures in the 15th, century that they had followed in the 14th, operating, indeed, as, did the Florentine government itself. ?60, At a time when it was the rule to travel to Italy with the sage, words of an earlier traveller in one's hand, visitors to Florence. Saalman's "spur piers", seems an insightful compromise. Here, Saalman discusses the many niachines used in the construction, of the cupola and the technology invented by Brunelleschi for, These five chapters are followed by a rich series of appendixes, dealing with the administrative organization of the Opera del, Duomo, the building materials, the capomaestri of the lantern, (Michelozzo and Antonio Manetti), structural questions arising, from the cracks in the cupola, and the documentary sources. Virtual models have revealed themselves as extremely effective tools for initiating dialogue between history and technique; they allow quick bidirectional communication of complex concepts without the need for simplification. Quednau's, research is systematic, thorough, multifaceted, and solidly based, on a wide variety of sources and on a deep knowledge of papal, and Medicean history and culture.

Brunelleschi, New York, 1980; L. H. Heydenreich and W. Lotz. But after listing the materials ordered for this, model, Saalman concludes that the documents mention insuf-, ficient building material, insufficient time, and insufficient labor. By early 1535, however, Belluzzi had moved to an estate of the Colonna outside of Rome, where a relative was in service. Our findings touch on the willingness to account for and report public funding, the presence of checks and balances inside the governance framework, the active engagement of citizens and local partners to achieve consensus, and notions of social responsibility toward the workers who helped to build the dome. This paper discusses three main topics: 1) the results achieved with the introduction of the virtualization in a multidisciplinary workgroup aimed at the reconstruction of the dockyard of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence. The first pair are Peter (d. ca. She calls him a "professional military architect" though there was no such a thing as a "profession" of architecture at this time.

Of course, it was well known by old master builders and the design problem in vaulted construction, since its beginning ca. In chapter four, "After the, Cupola 1436-1476," Saalman deals with the tribune morte, for, which he has new documents, and the construction of the lan-, tern. ca. El objetivo del presente informe y asistencia técnica ha sido estudiar la posibilidad de su reconstrucción, reparando los elementos dañados. Rather than, speculation on what might have been possible, we have at least a, clear understanding of where the known documentary record, Because this is a book that speaks of architectural processes, it, is fascinating to consider how slowly the Opera moved on all, phases of the construction. This is a tricky business, for the translation affects, not just the way we look at the structure but also our interpreta-, tion, in which context "rib" seems like a commitment to the, Gothic that one might not necessarily want to make. Most problems of chronology, iconography, sources, function, patronage, and reconstruction seem to have been, definitively resolved. Stability of such structures Battisti links the purchase of some, planks (for safety) with the gualandrino, and hence supports his, 1 R. J.

Vitruvius mentions that military engineers used models to test their designs for war machines, and there is evidence that models were used in the middle ages in the design and construction of many cathedrals; but none of these models remain. Pp. Could Brunelleschi, actually have lost one of these competitions? Rowland Mainstone has, suggested that the upper rings might have been intended to, provide "more dependable strength and stiffness at their respec-, tive levels and more secure bases for further unsupported ad-, vances into the void." Whatever the case, in a diplomatic visit to Florence in July 1543, Cosimo de' Medici hired Belluzzi, in the words of Lamberini, as a "military architect, indulging the ambition of this gentleman inclined towards fortifications, to undertake the enobling (nobilitante) profession of arms" (46). Models were often used in the 17th and 18th centuries in the design of large timber roofs (e.g. The second contains a new edition of Belluzzi's autobiographical notebook, a selection of letters and reports by Belluzzi to Cosimo de'Medici, the transcription of Belluzzi's manuscript on fortifications in the Archivio di Stato, Turin, and a new edition of Belluzzi's treatise on earth fortification in an authoritative version. As Saalman wisely, points out, the question of interior lighting is a matter for ex-. Of fundamental importance for future studies of the cupola is, Saalman's review of the documents and his exposition of the in-, sights he has derived from them; above all, this is a book about, architectural processes. Saalman has a firm grasp of the sequence, of events, and it is his special strength to be able to understand, the meaning of documentary silence. Pp.
