Brunelleschi’s cupola, Firenze, Italy
The Dome of Florence Cathedral is the main church of Florence, Italy. Il Duomo di Firenze, as it is ordinarily called, was begun in 1296 in the Gothic style with the design of Arnolfo di Cambio. A masterpiece able to withstand lightning strikes, earthquakes, the passing of the centuries, which today enchants anyone who observed from a distance, the dome has a diameter of 45.5 meters, that of the Baptistery.
