Cathedral

Museo dell’Opera del Duomo

The Cathedral of Florence, officially named Santa Maria del Fiore, is the religious center of the great medieval city. For two centuries, it was the largest church in Christendom and is situated by one of the oldest and most important monuments in Florence – the Baptistery of St. John.

We will explore the vast architecture of the cathedral and analyze the engineering marvels that made this structure and Brunelleschi’s great crowning dome possible.

The lecture will also include a visit to the cathedral museum which contains one of the most important collections of sculptures in the city including Ghiberti’s Gates of Paradise and Michelangelo’s second Pieta’.
