The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence was a marvel of art, architecture, and engineering. But it lacked a finishing ornament, a crown--a dome! This book tells the story of architect Filippo Brunelleschi and the construction of his masterpiece.
"With a great deal of charm and buttressed by understated humor, Fern tells a fictionalized story of Renaissance architect and engineer Filippo Brunelleschi and his most magnificent work, the dome of the Cathedral of Florence. "
"This neat blend of fact and fiction is as seamlessly constructed as the intricate brickwork of the dome on the Duomo."
