The crossing may be surmounted by a tower or spire, or by a dome in Eastern churches, a feature that was reintroduced to the West at the Renaissance, first in Filippo Brunelleschi's San Lorenzo (illustration right).

FIRENZE — Un incendio, quasi certamente di origine dolosa, si è sviluppato poco dopo mezzogiorno di ieri all'interno della basilica di San Lorenzo in centro a Firenze.
L'intervento di due sorveglianti della chiesa hanno evitato che il fuoco danneggiasse un olio su tavola, raffigurante l'Assunzione della Vergine, di Michele di Ridolfo del Ghirlandaio, del XVI secolo.
Negli anni passati la Basilica (nota per ospitare le Cappelle Medicee) era diventata il bivacco di numerosi extacomunitari, che in alcuni casi avevano utilizzato i confessionali come urinatoi, tanto da costringere le autorità a introdurre il biglietto a pagamento per le visite.
