Duration

Overview

    The Basilica of Santa Maria del Fiore, the cathedral of Florence, is one of the largest churches in Italy and even the modern era was one of the largest in the world, surpassed in width by the Pantheon. It is one of the masterpieces of Italian Gothic and remains the largest masonry cathedral ever built.

    The cathedral of Florence was started in 1296 in Gothic style, in a design by Arnolfo di Cambio and was completed (except the facade) in 1436, with the construction of the magnificent dome of Filippo Brunelleschi.

    The exterior of the basilica is covered with polychrome marble panels in various shapes, green and pink with white borders. The cathedral complex includes Giotto's Baptistery and Bell Tower. The three buildings are part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.

    The construction of Santa Maria del Fiore ended in 1469 with the placement of the copper ball (Verrocchio's work) in the lantern. But the facade was still unfinished and remained until the 19th century.
