Capitals: Art and Architecture

Definition of a Capital

A capital (from Latin capitellum, Italian capitello — little head) is the crowning part of a column or pilaster, performing not only a decorative but also a structural function. The upper part of the capital extends beyond the column, creating a visual and constructive transition to the horizontally situated entablature. This element is key in architectural composition, providing ample opportunities for decoration and emphasizing the style of the building.
