Piazza del Duomo

One of the most iconic view in Florence is Piazza del Duomo. The Dome, the Giotto’s Campanile and the Baptistery of Saint John (Battistero di San Giovanni in Italian) are a perfect example of the gothic style.

Remain fascinated by the Brunelleschi’s Dome, at the time the biggest dome in world that remains the biggest dome constructed in masonry. The Giotto’s Campanile is another great example of architecture made in Florence. All the information to visit the buildings in Piazza del Duomo could be founded on the Opera del Duomo website.

When I feel depression coming on, I return to Florence to admire Brunellischi’s Dome: If the genius of man was capable of so much, then even I can and I must try to create, to act, to live.
