The Virtue of Architecture and the City of Sforzinda

#1
An interesting essay here on 'The Virtue of Architecture':

Of note especially Filarefo's ideal city of Sforzinda - and his portrayal of 'virtue' as a (winged) armed man (Sforza) with Fama/Glory above (his own picture is different to the CY world card - but the concept is similar).
Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.
T. S. Eliot
