About Italian Renaissance Architecure

The architecture of the Italian Renaissance (early 15th through early 17th centuries) was a conscious revival and development of the architecture of the Greek and Roman civilization and accompanied an interest in classical thought and material culture. Developed first in Florence, with Filippo Brunelleschi as one of its innovators, the style quickly spread through Italy and eventually across Europe.

Renaissance style places emphasis on symmetry, proportion, geometry and the regularity of parts. Orderly arrangements of columns, pilasters and lintels, as well as the use of semicircular arches, hemispherical domes, niches and aediculi replaced the more complex proportional systems and irregular profiles of medieval buildings.

Italian Renaissance Style Mouldings

Renaissance style mouldings are derived from those used in classical temple architecture. Proponents of the style include Jacopo Barozzi da Vignola, Andrea Palladio, and Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti, among others.
