ITALY RESEARCH - Francesco Borromini PowerPoint


Borromini was a very interesting architect who was a much better designer than he was businessman. He had a lot of trouble keeping relationships, as is well documented with his relationship with Bernini. He was a great architect and is considered by some to be the first true architect. He was very passionate about his work, and was very hard headed because of this. He was so passionate about his work, that he once had a man killed on a job site for destroying materials. He is by far one of the most interesting architects because of both his skill, and personality.
