The Watermill bedrooms: Brunelleschi, towering genius of the Renaissance

The Watermill at Posara for painting, creative writing, knitting, and Italian language holidays/vacations/workshops, Tuscany, Italy.

Today’s Watermill bedroom is the Brunelleschi, named after Filippo Brunelleschi, one of my great architectural and artistic heroes.

Brunelleschi not only constructed the massive dome of Florence’s cathedral but also reinvented linear perspective. In fact, he is one of the characters in my historical detective novel A Matter of Perspective, set in Florence in 1425. He was also the mentor of Donatello, who reintroduced classical sculpture into Western art. That is Brunelleschi’s statue on the right, gazing up at his mind-boggling cupola.

The bright and airy bedroom has views over the Watermill courtyard and a terrace (which it shares, appropriately, with Donatello next door) looks out over the Watermill walled garden and the high peaks of the Apennine mountains beyond.
