Distinguished Figures in Descriptive Geometry and Its by Michela Cigola

By Michela Cigola

This e-book contains chapters that spotlight particularly on unmarried figures that labored on Descriptive Geometry and likewise in Mechanisms Sciences and include biographical notes, a survey in their paintings and their achievements, including a latest interpretation in their legacy.

Since Vitruvius in precedent days, and with Brunelleschi within the Renaissance, the 2 disciplines started to proportion a typical path which, over the centuries, took form via much less famous figures till the newer occasions during which Gaspard Monge worked.

Over the years, a niche has been created among Descriptive Geometry and Mechanism technology, which now seem to belong to diverse worlds. actually, although, there's a very shut courting among the 2 disciplines, with a hyperlink in keeping with super strong foundations. with no the theoretical foundations of Geometry it is going to no longer be attainable to attract and layout mechanical elements akin to gears, whereas in Kinematics it'd be much less effortless to layout and are expecting the reciprocal pursuits of components in a fancy mechanical assembly.

Figure IX 28 M. Cigola Fig. 18 a Stairs, b ionic order in “Manuale di Architettura” by Branca 1629. Figures 105 and 51 Branca’s approach changes in his “Manual of Architecture” published in the same year as “The Machines” (1629). Branca probably didn’t write the two volumes in the same year. Most likely, they worked on and prepared over a long period, perhaps in parallel, or first one and then the other, depending on how his research progressed. Once both texts were ready, he published the two concomitantly with the highest point of his career, after being named in 1616 the Architect of the Holy House of Loreto, and gaining Roman citizenship in 1622, as well as completing architectural works as a designer in various parts of Italy.

For these reasons (probably more than for his ecclesiastic and political career), Gerbert remains a key figure of late 10th century and one of the most relevant scholars in all medieval culture.
