Early life

Brunelleschi was born in Florence, Italy in 1377.[2] His family consisted of his father, Brunellesco di Lippo, a notary and civil servant, his mother Giuliana Spini, and his two brothers.[3] The family was well-off; the palace of the Spini family still exists, across from the Church of the Trinita in Florence.[4]
