|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.
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.
