The term renaissance refers to a cultural epoch of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, which had its origin in Italy, and from there spread to other countries of Europe. The word Renaissance is derived from the Italian expression "la rinascita", the rebirth. Apart from painting and architecture, sculpture and literature from the period from 1420 to 1525 are also included. The renaissance is divided into the frescoes, also known as Quattrocento, the High Renaissance, followed by Mannerism, which passed into the baroque age.
