2) Visit the Lorenzo Ghiberti website (go to the next page on Brunelleschi as
well) and read up on the rivalry between Lorenzo Ghiberti and Filippo

conducted themselves in this competition. Was Ghiberti being an intelligent
competitor, or dishonest? Did Brunelleschi overreact or was his reaction
appropriate? Choose one of these two artists and support how your chosen
artist acted in this competition as being the right way to act. If you do not
agree with how either acted in this competition, please describe how you
would have approached this competition if you were one of the artists?
