How is the Renaissance connected to the modern world?

I think that there are many connections between te Renaissance and the modern world because the renaissance was the innovative way of thinking that replaced the one of the middle ages. Sometimes this new way of thinking may be used also during the modern world because many things today are refered to things that happened during that period of history.

How did the Renaissance expressed in art, architecture and science?

The Italian Renaissance is one of the most productive periods in the history of arts, when the most important masters had beem found in all the major fields painting, sculpture, and architecture.In Florence, in the first half of the fifteenth century, there were great innovators in all these fields, whose work marked a beginning of a new era in the history of art. These innovators included Masaccio in painting, Brunelleschi in architecture, and Donatello in sculpture.During the Renaissance art and science were closely connected because the art of painting profited by two fields of study that may be called scientific: anatomy, which made possible a more accurate representation of the human body, and mathematical perspective.
