The Italian Renaissance
Nick Foland
What is it?
• The revival of art and literature
under the influence of classical
models in the 14th–16th centuries.
(1)
• A rebirth of beliefs mainly taking
place in Italy
Background
• In the 12th century, Europeans started to
rediscover Greek and Roman literature
• Led to the humanist movement in 14th
century and the beginning of the renaissance
• The growth of humanism created new ideas
in science, art, and architecture
• People began to think “outside of the box”
Architecture
• Adopted Classical Roman features
• Buildings are more square, symmetrical and have a
more planned appearance
• The façade of a building is symmetrical around vertical
axis.
• They used arches, domes, and columns
• Ceilings are not left open as they were in medieval
times.
• Italian architects prefer clearly defined forms of
architecture and “structural members that expressed
their purpose.”
