ITALY TRIP PART VI: WAKE ME UP BEFORE YOU DUOMO

a.k.a Piazza del Duomo


Plans for the catherdral buildings were approved in 1296 and completed in 1436.
(And I thought the Santa Monica city council permit process was slow.)


Hard to take a bad picture in Florence.

Italy's architectural roots run deep, but the future is relentless.

In the Piazza della Signoria: Michelangelo's David
(from this angle, you can't see his "Goliath")
