Commemorating Filippo Brunelleschi

The anniversary of Filippo Brunelleschi’s death (April 16, 1446) was commemorated in Florence today with a procession and wreath laying ceremony at his grave in the crypt of Santa Maria del Fiore (the Duomo). Brunelleschi was the genius behind the construction of the cupola of the Duomo and is one of my heroes.
