Italian term or phrase: Arco a terzo acuto
"Precisamente è stato rilevato che il costolone delle volte quadrate è un arco a terzo acuto, mentre quello delle volte rettangolari è un arco a quinto acuto.
L’arco a terzo acuto usato per i costoloni delle volte a base quadrata, è lo stesso che è poi stato utilizzato da Brunelleschi per la calotta interna della cupola di S. Maria del Fiore, cosi come l’arco a quinto acuto usato nei costoloni delle volte a base rettangolare, è stato utilizzato per la calotta esterna."
