Ospedale degli Innocenti

circa 1421

Why is it canonical?

The Hospital of the Innocents represents another great achievement of civic sponsorship intended to advance the community or address a social problem through economic partnerships and the commission of a great craftsman. Much like other art of the day, the style of the building revives classical styles, forms, and proportions and rejects the dominant aesthetics of the medieval period.
