The dome of Florence Cathedral is considered by many to be among the finest in the world. Being one of the largest domes ever constructed, it is certainly worthy of such a title. The grandeur of the dome itself is a visible icon of Renaissance thinking- the power of man to use technology and its own ingenuity to achieve seemingly impossible tasks. It is representative of the humanist approach of the Renaissance to arts and architecture.
