It was Filippo Brunelleschi, architect and engineer. In 1421, Brunelleschi devised a barge with a hoist to be used for bringing marble blocks up the river Arno to Florence from the quarries at Carrera. However, he refused to construct the vessel until the city granted him the exclusive right to use his design for a period of three years, and thus was awarded the first technical patent in history.Answered by Manisha Mehra, 26 Nov '08 01:41 pm
