Brunelleschi’s Dome of Florence

I was doing a little research on the land of my ancestors. Anyway, I came across a fellow named Brunelleschi who designed the dome of the church in Florence, the largest brick dome in the world. He was one of if not the greatest architect of the Italian Renaissance. Click on the picture and  enlarge. If you look close you will see tourists on top which will help you appreciate the size of the dome.
