Filippo di Ser Brunellesco Lapi, known as Filippo Brunelleschi (1377 - 1446), was an Italian architect.
Among his assets he has several achievements in various fields, namely: He was the promoter of Renaissance architecture (and later an entire movement that encompassed various arts), to the detriment of the partially prevailing Gothic style in Italy in his early time. On the other hand, he developed the technique of perspective in painting, a fact that helped spread the Renaissance in the arts throughout Europe.
He had, therefore, deep mathematical knowledge, beyond his own performance of the artistic task, and precisely for this reason he became a cornerstone of the development of art in his time.
