Filarete

(fē`lärĕ`tā), c.1400–c.1465, Italian architect and sculptor, whose real name was Antonio Averlino, b. Florence. In the 1430s he went to Rome, where he studied the monuments of antiquity. His most famous project was the bronze doors for St. Peter's. Although somewhat original in style, he was not a highly skillful artist. In 1451 he was summoned to Milan by Francesco Sforza to design parts of buildings. He wrote an important treatise, Trattato di architettura, defending the principles of ancient architecture.

Ne dovremmo dimenticare che in quel secolo artisti come Brunelleschi, Piero della Francesca, Leonardo, Leon Battista Alberti, Palladio e Filarete accompagnano il loro lavoro con scritti in cui l'aspetto tecnico e manuale e i riferimenti alle manovalanze sono frequentissimi (Rossi Paolo 24), perche, evidentemente, l'idea dell'uomo faber sta corrodendo il vecchio pregiudizio della vilta di ogni altro lavoro che non sia intellettuale.
