Leonardo da Vinci as a innovative genius, inventor and scientific expert exemplified this Renaissance artist. He carefully documented his observations in his now famed notebooks about his investigations into the forces of nature and the qualities and motion of water. Early Italian water feature designers transformed private villa settings into amazing water showcases complete with emblematic meaning and natural charm by coupling imagination with hydraulic and gardening expertise. The humanist Pirro Ligorio brought the vision behind the wonders in Tivoli and was celebrated for his skill in archeology, architecture and garden concepts. Other fountain designers, masterminding the incredible water marbles, water attributes and water humor for the various domains near Florence, were well-versed in humanistic topics and classical scientific readings.

Introduction to Hydrostatics

Introduction to Hydrostatics Liquid in a state of equilibrium exerts force on the objects it contacts, including its container. These fall into 2 categories, hydrostatic load or outside force. The liquid applies the exact amount of force to the various spots that it comes in contact with, provided that the surface is standard. Liquid in equilibrium will implement vertical pressure at every point of an object’s exterior when that object is fully submerged in the liquid.Introduction Hydrostatics 65201675092944.jpg These vertical forces are buoyancy, and the concept by itself is more fully explained by Archimedes’principle. When hydrostatic force is applied on an area of liquid, this will become hydrostatic pressure. These concepts are applied to the containers used by plumbing, wells, and fountains.

Statuary As a Staple of Vintage Art in Ancient Greece

Statuary As a Staple of Vintage Art in Ancient Greece Archaic Greeks were known for creating the first freestanding statuary; up until then, most carvings were made out of walls and pillars as reliefs. Most of the freestanding statues were of youthful, winsome male or female (kore) Greeks and are called kouros figures. The kouroi, regarded by the Greeks to symbolize beauty, had one foot extended out of a fixed forward-facing pose and the male statues were always nude, with a powerful, strong build. Life-sized versions of the kouroi appeared beginning in 650 BC. The Archaic period was an amazing point of change for the Greeks as they extended into new modes of government, produced fresh expressions of art, and gained information of the men and women and cultures outside of Greece. But in spite of the issues, the Greek civilization continued to progress, unabated.

Water-raising System by Camillo Agrippa

Water-raising System by Camillo Agrippa The admiration Agrippa’s water-lifting creation earned from Andrea Bacci in 1588 was temporary. It may have turned out to be obsolete when the Villa Medici was able to get water from the Acqua Felice, the early modern conduit, in 1592. Its success might have been temporary but the unit invented by Camillo Agrippa was still unlike anything built in Italy during the period which split the contemporary years from early Rome.Water-raising System Camillo Agrippa 401553114371.jpg Renaissance gardens of the later part of the 16th century were home to works including music water features, scenographic water presentations and water caprices (giochi d’acqua), but these were not outfitted with water in ways which defied the force of gravity itself.
