Comentary 1: The constructions of Duomo weren't finished. Fillippo had thought in different designs to construct the Duomo, as Cosimo had found manuscripts about ideas and secrets from the Ancient World. It helped to elaborate an better way to finish the Duomo. All the ideas and knowledge used to architecture were so helpful for us, many different types of houses, museums, churches. All then had been used until today in our modern world.
Comentary 2: Cosimo had particular problems, with his artist, and as a thought to don't always happened the same thing over and over, he would not push or force them because they would be more tired and unhappy to finish the painting that Cosimo paid for. I agree with Cosimo by his thinking, because you have pressure from patrons. A lot money available not all of the projects would guaranty, dignity and responsibility to finish in the days that the patrons had paid for.
Brunelleschi unveiled a new technique, he invented perspective
Comentary 3: The perspective proportion the way how we look to an art to today, to represent an illusion of object as three- dimensional rounded solids forms, imitating the appearance of from our natural world. When e look to a house in front of you, in the back you can also see some small houses next to each other making the illusion that you are seeing three- dimensional

Lorenzo had pratonized Michelangelo
Commentary 2: Lorenzo is a kind of a men who knew where he was looking for, he could see Michelangelo`s talent. So the idea of Lorenzo invite him to his family begins an close relationship between an patron and a artist, that has grow up.

Video 3: The Medici Pope
Michelangelo created David, it was a sculpture
Commentary 1: The David has been a commission form he Church, to put out in the top of the building that is why it is so big, because it had to be visible form the ground. I think that in that time the sculpture David would be a step forward for the people in Florence that it would be a shame for them. Also because it was almost a symbol of the city itself. I think what Michelangelo had created became the ultimate symbol of resistance of the Medici. The sculpture David was represent and seen by the citizen, the Medici glory.
Video 4: Power vs. Thruth
The Medici Family needed a new duke
Commentary 1: After enemies had killed Alessandro Duke, the son of Giulio (Pope) the allies of the Medici were desperate for a saver who could have control and power, Cosimo I a fourth cousin to the murder duke . He education wasn't a typical humanist education of a prince, so those characteristics which in the eyes of the contemporaries would make him week enough to be manipulated. Cosimo I had not been born from a noble family at all, he was from a minor family, who got lucky in terms of political alliances and he was always very insecure because he nodded that the rest of the European royalty looked at him as some kind of just an respectful person. Giorgio Vasari believed that Cosimo I had potential, he rescue the broken arm of the David' s statue safely. But he needed a patron to repair the sculpture , and he also knew that Cosimo I needed publicity. I think that the book it was the first book that someone addresses the issue of explaining why those years in florence had created many artist and report the first history and creative book in my opinion of definition of the Renascence.
