Follow me on:

Today is the birthday of the original Renaissance Man, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Exterior of Michelangelo's dome at St. Peter's Basilica born March 6, 1475.

Throughout his career, Michelangelo did a little painting (think ceiling of the Sistine Chapel), did a little sculpting (think Pietà), but some say his greatest achievements were in architecture (think St. Peter's Basilica dome).

What is Renaissance architecture?
