A vivid account of these two talented, passionate Florentine artists who competed for commissions and influence. Brunelleschi, who solved the greatest construction problem of his time -the magnificent dome of the Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral - nonetheless, had to share the commission with his old archrival. On the other hand, Ghiberti garnered the commission to design a set of bronze doors for the Church of St. John the Baptist; a cast second set was so exquisite that Michelangelo deemed them worthy to stand at the Gates of Paradise.
