Renaissance Periods and Styles History Architecture

The Italian Renaissance ('rinascimento' means rebirth) from c.1420 to the mid-16th century rediscovered and re-used the architectural standards and motifs of Ancient Rome. Gradually these ideas spread to other European countries, but often in a fragmentary or modified form until the later revival known as Neo-Classicism.
