The Colosseum is a great example of the architecture of the Renaissance, it's the largest elliptical amphitheater built of concrete and stone in the Roman Empire.
During the Renaissance, one of the famous artists in the world, Leonardo da Vinci got to work! Leonardo da Vinci was an incredible inventor. He invented the diving suit,the parachute,and the ornithopter. He was referred to as the first Renaissance Man. This is all thanks to his interests, explorations, and talents which encompassed so much of the thinking and invitation of the Renaissance!
William Shakespeares' plays are a great example of the legacy of the Renaissance. Today, his plays are taught in schools and many of them have been brought to life.There are large-scale productions of them everywhere. Some of his most striking plays, such as Romeo and Juliet, are more well-known than others.
Michelangelo was Leonardo da Vinci's younger contemporary. He took a similar yet different approach to painting. Michelangelo focused simply on the human body. Because of Michelangelo's exquisite drawings, Pope Julius II offered Michelangelo the opportunity to paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican. This led to one of Michelangelo's best works yet.
Everywhere we look we see different kinds of buildings, many of them were inspired by the Renaissance. Renaissance architecture is largely classified by the use of domes, closed and decorated ceilings, arched windows, columns, and arched doors.
