The Renaissance was a time when men sought new ideas, but many of them were influenced by the main ideas of the Greeks and Romans; art, architecture, culture, education, and the way of think.Probably, that influence is most noticeable in art and architecture. Great Renaissance artists such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo followed the Greco-Roman examples in their magnificent paintings and statues. Also, architects such as Bramante designed buildings with columns and arches taken from Greece and Rome.This looked to the past also influenced education and language, since, for example, Coluccio Salutati the Chancellor of Florence. Salutati, like the ancient great cities, began to promote its city as intellectual capital (K. Emmerson, pg 590-591). Salutati also admired Cicero, one of the best ancient philosophers.We can also see how humanism is being re-explored, it that has not happened since the fall of Greece and Rome.From the end of the 14th century, a group of academics centered on the Italian city of Florence began to look to the past as a source of inspiration. This academic group studied the classics of the ancient Greek and Roman works. In the works of the classics, They found a way of thinking similar to their own time.On the other hand, the Renaissance pointed to the future. Through this glance at the past, people began to study more and more the world around them and they were trying to find answers to their questions, this is how Italian Renaissance took place in the future.Thanks to this curiosity generated by Renaissance, we find great inventions of the time. Galileo Galilei perfected the primitive telescope making it 30 times more powerful, with this Galilean discovered many planets among them Saturn.But without a doubt, the image of the Renaissance revolution in terms of progress was undoubtedly Leonardo Da Vinci. Perhaps most people know him thanks to his paintings since he was outstanding for works such as La Gioconda, La Cené or Homme de Vitruve, but he also studied anatomy and engineering. Da Vinci developed the plans for the Aerial Screw and The Planner, although they have not been realized in his epoch was an inspiration in the future to create the helicopter and the airplane.Perhaps it may seem a contradiction, but thanks to that look back at the past and the study of ancient Rome and Greece, the Italian Renaissance achieved great technological advances, placing Italy at the forefront of medieval culture.
