What does divisare mean?
Divisare means imagining, designing with the mind, literally “to devise”. The term was used by Leon Battista Alberti to define the work of the architect.
“Architettore chiamerò io colui, il quale saprà con certa, e maravigliosa ragione, e regola, sì con la mente, e con lo animo divisare”.
“Him I call an Architect, who, by sure and wonderful Art and Method, is able, both with Thought and Invention, to devise.”
(Leon Battista Alberti — De Re Aedificatoria, 1452)
