 Student Travel Information & Discounts - Events: Cathedral of S. Maria del Fiore (Duomo) (Cathedral of S. Maria del ...
The Cathedral of S. Maria del Fiore, often referred to as the Duomo, is without question the most impressive sight in Florence and one of the most beautiful sights in the whole of Italy.
Arnolfo's design was subjected to numerous modifications, however, and the most obvious are visible on the church's sides, where the first four windows are narrower and closer together than those toward the east, which are part of an enlargement of the plan due to Francesco Talenti (in charge of construction after the mid-14th century).
The last part of Santa Maria del Fiore to be finished was the facade, completed between 1871 and 1887 to Emilio De Fabris' design, in a neo-gothic style reminiscent of the gothic decoration of the Bell Tower (designed by Giotto) and side portals of the cathedral.

It indeed comprises churches known worldwide, such as the cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistery, symbol of Florence since the Middle Ages, and joined to the Fabbriceria del Duomo only in 1777 following the suppression of the Opera di San Giovanni.
These are joined by the remains of another church deeply rooted in the city’s history, the ancient cathedral of Santa Reparata that reemerged beneath the floor of the Duomo during archaeological excavations conducted between 1965 and 1973.
The institution’s activity in conservation and valorization of works of art is fully testified by other sites, first and foremost the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo, instituted in 1891 with the purpose of assembling the numerous masterpieces removed in the course of time from S. Maria del Fiore and from S. Giovanni.

 Firenze : Santa Maria del Fiore
Il Duomo, o Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, è una delle chiese più grandi esistenti e il suo nome deriva dal fiore d'oro offerto alla città da Papa Eugenio IV durante l'atto della sua consacrazione.
La attuale facciata in stile neogotico fu realizzata alla fine del XIX secolo; la facciata originaria di Arnolfo di Cambio, mai definitivamente completata, fu invece demolita nel corso del Cinquecento.
L'interno del Duomo, a differenza del sontuoso esterno, è invece sobrio e lineare, quasi spoglio, in più puro stile gotico e contiene alcuni importanti monumenti funebri in pietra, tra cui una tomba dello scultore senese Tino di Camaino, e in affresco, ad opera di Andrea del Castagno e Paolo Uccello.

A cento anni dalla nascita (il 2 aprile del 1904) e a 25 anni dalla sua morte, thiu Costantinu Longu, viene ricordato con una serie di manifestazioni che si terranno nel suo paese Ñ oltre al premio di poesia organizzato da "Su Cuncordu Bolotanesu" Ñ e anche in altri centri del Marghine.
Sono stati ricordati gli inizi "de Tiu Costantinu", travagliati dalla sua povera e umile vita, con la prima gara poetica a Santu Lussurgiu nel lontano 1945, unitamente agli amici fraterni Peppe Sotgiu e Simula, per poi a seguire con tutti i grandi della poesia isolana: Tucconi, Piras, Budroni, Sassu e Seu.
Alcuni docenti, tra i tanti che hanno preso la parola, hanno proposto che le poesie del Longu, possano far parte dei testi di riferimento nelle scuole, contribuendo così a valorizzare la cultura e la lingua sarda.

 Brunelleschi and Santa Maria del Fiore
The Gothic period that preceded the Renaissance was essentially a North-European phenomenon and this style was seldom adopted in Italy; when it was, it was so personalized that it is difficult to speak even of an Italian Gothic (Venitian Gothic has nothing to do with Milanese or Tuscan Gothic).
Santa Maria del Fiore would therefore be built in assorted style to the Baptistry.
The Florentine wanted to outdo Pisa and Siena's large domed cathedrals, and they overreached themselves so much that the problem of the dome, too big to be built, remained unsolved for 125 years.

 Your way to Florence: Florence cathedral: The Duomo of Florence and Giotto's Campanile.
The Florence Duomo is dedicated to Santa Maria del Fiore and is typical of Italian Gothic architecture.
Of primary importance are the two frescoes on the right-hand wall showing the equestrian monuments of the "condottieri" John Hawkwood and Niccolò da Tolentino by Paolo Uccello (1436) and Andrea del Castagno (1456).
Many of the sculptures from the Duomo are now kept in the Museum of the Opera del Duomo (see separate entry) but others are still in place, such as the lunettes by Luca della Robbia above the doors of the Sacristy or the bronze door of the Mass Sacristy.
