Discovering the Duomo in Florence
This masterpiece, designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, is one of the largest and most beautiful cathedrals in the world. It was started in 1296 and completed around 1436 (the facade was completed only in 1887), and many artists, such as Andrea Pisano, Francesco Talenti, Lorenzo Ghiberti, and obviously Filippo Brunelleschi, worked on it during its construction. The Cathedral is composed of three buildings: the Cathedral, the Baptistery, and the Bell tower. These are part of the UNESCO Heritage Site.
