In "De prospectiva pingendi" by Piero della Francesca, a renowned artist born in Sansepolcro, the bases of a new Renaissance geometrical perspective are outlined.

In the Treatise, very likely written between 1472 and 1475, a number of perspective reduction problems are proposed, from the simplest ones to the more complex ones, conceived so as to introduce gradually to the new technique, through practical demonstrations. The Artist puts a number of queries and replies with the construction of the perspective by means of geometrical drawings and illustrations.
