Brunelleschi Builds The DuomoWhen construction on the Santa Maria del Fiore started in 1296, the design did not include its giant, 8-sided dome; its architect died before finishing the building. In 1418, the Opera del Duomo announced a public competition for the construction of the dome with a handsome prize of 200 gold florins—and a shot at eternal fame—for the winner. Leading architects of the time flocked to Florence to present ideas. Brunelleschi won the competition and his version of the dome was completed in 1436.
