As a result, the word "Renaissance" among architectural historians usually applies to the period 1400 to ca. His influence was extended worldwide into the British colonies. It was a politically tumultuous time, marked by the decline of the State of the Teutonic Order and the Livonian War. The first period (1500–50) is the so-called "Italian" as most of Renaissance buildings of this time were designed by Italian architects, mainly from Florence, including Francesco Fiorentino and Bartolomeo Berrecci. The plan has centralized circular halls with wings and porticos expanding on all four sides. The size of this arch is in direct contrast to the two low square-topped openings that frame it. The books were translated into many languages, and went through many editions, well into the eighteenth and nineteenth century.[27]. [11] Trissino also gave him the name by which he became known, Palladio, an allusion to the Greek goddess of wisdom Pallas Athene and to a character of a play by Trissino. [6], Through humanism, civic pride and the promotion of civil peace and order were seen as the marks of citizenship. The style appeared following the marriage of King Matthias Corvinus and Beatrice of Naples in 1476.

His first major architectural commission was the rebuilding of the Basilica Palladiana at Vicenza, in the Veneto where he was to work most of his life.[5]. He illustrated a rich variety of columns, arcades, pediments, pilasters and other details which were soon adapted and copied. Documents show that he received a dowry in April 1534 from the family of his wife, Allegradonna, the daughter of a carpenter. One of the first buildings to use pilasters as an integrated system was in the Old Sacristy (1421–1440) by Brunelleschi. The second book included Palladio's town and country house designs and classical reconstructions. However, as the technology and finance were found to complete it, the rising dome did credit not only to the Virgin Mary, its architect and the Church but also to the Signoria, the Guilds and the sectors of the city from which the manpower to construct it was drawn. The space is crowded and it is to be expected that the wall spaces would be divided by pilasters of low projection. Openings that do not have doors are usually arched and frequently have a large or decorative keystone. Palladio's architecture was not dependent on expensive materials, which must have been an advantage to his more financially pressed clients. This also meant that it was not until about 1500 and later that signs of Renaissance architectural style began to appear outside Italy. Several architects of Italian origin were active in the country, including Bernardino Zanobi de Gianotis, Giovanni Cini and Giovanni Maria Mosca.

The dome, as built, has a much steeper projection than the dome of the model. Most of his buildings were destroyed during World War II. [13] He used this in his design for the Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome. His success as an architect is based not only on the beauty of his work, but also for its harmony with the culture of his time. This idea was in direct coincidence with the rising acceptance of the theological ideas of St. Thomas Aquinas, who postulated the notion of two worlds existing simultaneously: the divine world of faith, and the earthly world of humans. This feature was exported to England.[2][20]. At the church of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice he overlays a tall temple, its columns raised on high plinths, over another low wide temple façade, its columns rising from the basements and its narrow lintel and pilasters appearing behind the giant order of the central nave.[2]. It was an earlier project from 1545 to 1550 and remained uncompleted due to elaborate elevations in his designs. He excelled in each of the fields of painting, sculpture and architecture and his achievements brought about significant changes in each area.

San Zaccaria received its Renaissance façade at the hands of Antonio Gambello and Mauro Codussi, begun in the 1480s. The new style is called Plateresque, because of the extremely decorated façade, that brought to the mind the decorative motifs of the intricately detailed work of silversmiths, the Plateros.

[2], Leon Battista Alberti, born in Genoa (1402–1472), was an important Humanist theoretician and designer whose book on architecture De re Aedificatoria was to have lasting effect. [5], He designed a number of buildings, but unlike Brunelleschi, he did not see himself as a builder in a practical sense and so left the supervision of the work to others. Stuccoed brickwork was always used in his villa designs in order to give the appearance of a classical Roman structure. The building was especially influential, particularly in England and the United States, where it inspired "Neo-Palladianist" buildings such as Mereworth Castle (1724) in Kent and Thomas Jefferson's Montecello in Virginia (1772). Trade brought wool from England to Florence, ideally located on the river for the production of fine cloth, the industry on which its wealth was founded. In 1505, an Italian known in Russia as Aleviz Novyi built twelve churches for Ivan III, including the Cathedral of the Archangel, a building remarkable for the successful blending of Russian tradition, Orthodox requirements and Renaissance style.
