In 1418, Florence, Italy had a problem. Their beautiful cathedral, built to be the crowning jewel of the city, couldn’t be finished. In fact, it hadn’t been finished for decades. An enormous hole was in the roof where the dome should have been. Nobody could figure out how to finish a dome almost 150 feet across and starting almost 180 feet above the ground.

According to the article, “Leonardo’s Touch in The Baptism of Christ” by leonardoresearch.com (n.d.) the author says, “The hair of the angel is marvelous, but it shows an inexperienced touch.” Leonardo was only about twenty years at the time, his painting skills (although magnificent at the time) were still developing, but he undoubtedly was a talented painter.

The new program, which immediately supplanted earlier modest estimates, called for an appropriation of $640,000,000. The necessary legislation was pushed rapidly through Congress in the Aviation Act of 24 July 1917, of all requisites; the United States had only raw materials, man-power, and enthusiasm.

The Army acquired its first plane 1909; its first special appropriation for aviation, a sum of $125,000, in 1911.
He had built the tomb at around the time of 1937. It would be over 300 years after Shakespeare had written his play that the tomb was constructed. “It is thanks to Antonio Avena that visitors from everywhere can now find in Verona of the places to see and where to place the tragedy of the heroine immortalized by Shakespeare” If it were not for his love and wanting to prove it, Tomba of di Giulietta would have never been made into a reality.

With that, people feel that the tomb is a reality of such of an impacting, and meaningful love making it real.
My dearest Marie, Oh, how things have changed. It has been almost twelve years since you moved back to France to take care of our father; we both know that our mother’s death burdens him the most. Mother passed so quickly, the coroner still isn’t fully sure why she died. Isn’t it hard to believe that it was almost 20 years ago when we worked up enough courage and saved up enough money to move all the way to North America? Doesn’t it seem like yesterday when Monsieur Boovelle was trying his hardest to teach us basic English?
The marvelous architecture that took time, money, and consideration has given birth to fabulous building that has gone down in history. The Mosque took years and years before it was deemed worthy of being a finished structure. Because of that, it holds so much history of different architecture that was created, modified, and built upon in Iran. When one walks through the Mosque, they are literally walking through time in architecture development. The Temple of Ise, even though it kept its original design, it is being rebuilt every 20 years or so because the temples are made of wood.

William Shakespeare is the most studied and acclaimed author in today’s world. Someone with the ability to arrange words in such a beautiful and poetic way is someone who deserves the praise. However, many people believe the man who we think wrote Shakespeare’s plays did not actually pen his works. Though there are many theorists who believe that Shakespeare did not write his plays, however scholars still believe that Shakespeare is the sole author of his works. One reason many people believe William Shakespeare did not write Shakespeare is there is not a lot of documentation about him.
