Buckminster Knows 005

Sant'Andrea di Mantova (1462-1790) is one of the most influential designs by Renaissance master Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472). Because of the 328 year-span it took to finish the church (changes and expansions included), the result differs noticeably from Alberti's original design.
The spectacular dome (1732-1782) over the crossing of the nave and transept was designed by Filippo Juvarra (1678-1738).
