    Dome of the cathedral of florence

    The first thing you notice when you arrive at the Duomo square is that it is not an architecture but an architectural ensemble formed by the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the tower or Campanile. Another surprise is the difference between French and Italian classical Gothic. The French is characterized by a marked verticality; the replacement of the wall by large stained glass windows or the profusion of buttresses and flying buttresses with pinnacles and gargoyles. Italian Gothic is much more horizontal, more massive, with hardly any windows and without the typical Gothic system of exterior buttresses. At least, this is the case of the Cathedral or Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1982.

    Santa Maria is unmistakable for the combination of the marble of its walls in which three colors and three different origins alternate: the white marble is from Carrara; the green from Prato and the red from Siena.

    Inside, the plan is basilica-like, with a very tall and wide central nave and two side naves (less tall and wide), which form a Latin cross. The naves are separated by a pointed arcade (pointed arches). It is a somewhat bare space because some of the sculptures that decorated it are in the Museum of the Cathedral (Museo dell’Opera del Duomo).

    KeshishyanEreván, Armenia99 aportesEstuvimos allí en diciembre, no es una temporada alta de turismo, así que compramos el billete allí mismo. El billete costaba 18 euros, según recuerdo, y te permite entrar en seis lugares, la iglesia (Duomo), la Capilla, el Baptisterio, Santa Reparata, el Museo del Duomo y el Campanario de Giotto durante 72 horas.

    The Metropolitan Cathedral Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, or Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Italian: Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore) is the episcopal see (in Italian duomo) of the archdiocese of Florence, Italy. It is one of the masterpieces of Gothic art and of the first Italian Renaissance.

    Symbol of the wealth and power of the Tuscan capital during the 13th and 14th centuries, the Florentine cathedral is one of the largest buildings in Christianity. Its name refers to the river, symbol of Florence, or to the ancient name of the town called Fiorenza. But, on the other hand, a document of the XV century affirms that the «flower» refers to Christ.

    After the resolution of the contest, both architects were in charge of carrying out the work. There was no consensus. Ghiberti made a mockery of these plans and took them as impossible. Brunelleschi, deeply offended, resembled an illness and left for Rome, leaving the project in Ghiberti’s hands. But Ghiberti soon realized that he was not capable of carrying out the work on his own. In 1423 Brunelleschi returned and took full responsibility for its construction.

    Symbol of the wealth and power of the Tuscan capital during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, the Florentine cathedral is one of the largest buildings in Christendom. Its name refers to the lily, symbol of Florence, or to the ancient name of the town called Fiorenza. But, on the other hand, a 15th century document states that the «flower» refers to Christ.

    Despite the resolution of the competition, both architects were commissioned to carry out the work. There was no consensus. Ghiberti scoffed at these plans and called them impossible. Brunelleschi, deeply offended, feigned illness and left for Rome, leaving the project in Ghiberti’s hands. But Ghiberti soon realized that he was not capable of carrying out the work on his own.
