This presentation exemplifies how knowledge was transferred and transformed from one project to another with great success and demonstrates the great value in doing this. It narrates the construction project of the Florence Duomo by Fillipo Brunelleschi in the fifteenth century. This was the most significant dome project in Europe in 1300 years, and possibly the most significant, innovative and complex project of the Renaissance era. In order to achieve what seemed technically impossible at the time, Brunelleschi researched and adapted the construction and project management practices of the Pantheon in Rome in the second century.
