    Epub Basilica ePUB Ù ↠ smrl.me basilica pdf, Basilica PDFVery similar to ‘Brunelleschi’s Dome’ this is an account of building St Peter’s Broader is scope the whole building not just the dome—and it is much bigger—thus complicated right? but not as interesting for some reason this covers the centuries it took to assemble the building we have today I used the word ‘assemble’ like it came in a kit A building so magnificent and mysterious deserves the same in its telling All the back stories are there—in fighting amongst the pious religious wars endless debates concerning cost style and content Perhaps I read this too close to ‘Dome’ because that book zipped along and this one plods The author seemed to spend an inordinate amount of time on the creation of the hole the building would sit in Things that fascinate him aren’t necessarily fascinatingThe only time this account perks up is when Michelan

    Epub Basilica ePUB Ù ↠ smrl.me basilica pdf, Basilica PDFI enjoyed this book very much because I love architecture and Rome and St Peter's and Michelangelo and Bernini But the whole time I was reading this book I was thinking have I read this before? I've kept a list of all the books I've read since I was 10 and this wasn't on the list so either I read it and didn't record it which seems unlikely or I've learned all this information from other books art history classes d
