Explore Duomo Florence

The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore or the Florence Cathedral is a monument dedicated to the Virgin of the Flowers. Initially designed by Arnolfo di Cambio, the construction of the Duomo Florence began in 1296. The cathedral took 140 years to complete and the project was worked on by a number of different architects such as Giotto di Bondone, Andrea Pisano, Alberto Arnoldi. However, none of them are as famous as Filippo Brunelleschi, a goldsmith, who won a design competition and was commissioned to design and construct the now world-famous dome of the church.

Architecture

Initially, when Arnolfo di Cambio first began the project in 1296, it followed more of a Gothic style of architecture, with characteristics of Tuscan-style Romanesque architecture, as seen with the inlaid marble paneling. It wasn’t until Filippo Brunelleschi became part of the construction, that the new method and style - an ingenious and artistic combination of Gothic-style architecture and the principles of classic Roman architecture - was implemented and used.

Domes and Interiors

Filippo Brunelleschi proposed, with his design for the church, to create a self-supporting dome. His design involved creating two domes - an inner and outer dome, with the inner shell being self-supportive using masonry blocks, brickwork, and embedded chain supports. Ultimately, this dome set the tone for the new style, method, and spirit of scientific and aesthetic inquiry - the key feature of the Renaissance movement. The interiors of the cathedral are vast and breathtaking. From beautiful frescoes, paintings, statues, and stained glass designs to ornate doors and complex mosaics, the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore is truly an inspirational work of art, from both outside and in.

Giotto's Campanile

Part of the Piazza del Duomo is Giotto di Bondone’s beautiful bell tower, a prime example of Fiorentine Gothic Architecture. Standing atop the Giotto's Campanile gives breathtaking views of the city and the Piazza del Duomo, however, you do need to climb 414 steps to savour this delicious view.

Florence Baptistery

One of Florence’s most important religious buildings, the Battistero di San Giovanni, is dedicated to the patron saint, John the Baptist. It is one of the oldest buildings in Italy and is constructed in the Tuscan-Romanesque style. The Florence Baptistery is especially renowned for its artistic east doors created by goldsmith Lorenzo Ghiberti, dubbed by the great Michelangelo as the “Gates of Paradise”.

Top Attractions in Florence
