Written by Stefania Cottiglia, who for years has been unveiling architecture's mysteries to young adults, this book's ambition is to convey the fervor of the Renaissance's cradle through the architect that created its symbol: Brunelleschi and his Dome. The volume is enriched with vivid illustrations created by Andrea Orani, a master of design.

The book details Filippo Brunelleschi's ventures: from being a goldsmith apprentice to becoming the winner of the contest for the new door of the Battistero, passing through his Roman period and finishes at his completion of the Dome for Florence's cathedral, which put him in the history books. Step by step, the reader will understand how the Dome symbolised a whole new concept of the world. Thanks to the cut-out model, young readers will be able to build a reproduction of the 'Cupola', becoming active stars of the cultural revolution of the 15th century.
