    The villa plan shows the geometrical clarity of Palladio's conception: a circle inscribed in a small square inside a larger square, with symmetrical rectangular compartments and identical rectangular projections from each of its faces. The duo of architecture and geometry goes way back in time and may be the source of what humans find "beautiful" even today. Florence, Italy is often considered the center of the Early Italian Renaissance. Buildings were designed with a central dome that eventually rose to new heights by using engineering practices refined in the Middle East. The Medici controlled the Medici bank —then Europe's largest bank—and an array of other enterprises in Florence and elsewhere.

    Palladio brought Venetian Renaissance architecture to its grand conclusion with his villas, palaces, and churches. In the s, one section of the upper level was veneered; however, the philosophy of twentieth-century conservation requires that the rest of the building be left in rough stone, as it is today. Builders in ancient Egypt didn't use load-bearing arches. The Medici Palace inaugurated a new monumentality and regularity of plan in residential urban architecture. What is entirely new in San Lorenzo is its mathematical regularity and symmetry.

    This same formula controlled also the vertical dimensions. Gargoyles and other sculpting enabled practical and decorative functions. Early in his architectural career, Alberti devised a facade - begun in but never finished - to be the unifying front for a planned merger of eight adjacent houses in Florence acquired by Giovanni Rucellai. Among its many principles, humanism promoted the idea that man was the center of his own universe, and people should embrace human achievements in education, classical arts, literature and science. These buildings were proportioned according to the classical orders with details borrowed from ancient Greece and Rome. Although the facade was not built until after the architect's death, his original design was followed.
