My last post was about my fascination with domes. But of all the domes out there, the most fascinating one, the one you can never get away from anywhere in Florence is the one simply called Duomo. It is extraordinary in scale and the story of how it came to be built is amazing.
If you are anywhere in the city of Florence, you orient yourself by that dome. Here it is viewed from pretty close to the base.
And from a hillside across the river,this Florence at sunset with that distinctive dome.
Glimpsed and sketched again from a window at the Uffizi…
And one more view of it, seen over rooftops.
