The Italian Renaissance (Italian: Renascimento) is a period of history, especially arts and cultural history, that came about and centered around a renewed interest in Ancient Roman architecture and art, as well as a new philosophy of Humanism, where human accomplishment is celebrated and strived for. This is often in contrast with the Medieval period. The period began in the 13th century and originated in literature, but then spread to the other areas of human knowledge.

Today, many people still regard the Italian Renaissance as one of the most appealing and beautiful periods of art due to the fact that more modern viewers can connect with the modernity. The traditions and practices artists made during this time still persist to our time, and the most famous artists are still regarded as "the Old Masters."
