Brunelleschi's Dome

The Dome from ground level

I have just finished reading Brunebleschi's Dome by Ross King, an interesting insight into both the mind and workings of a genius as well as how things got built during the Renaissance. Flippo Brunelleschi had mto invent machines to build his dome, the largest masonery dome built before or since.
