The City

Florence, the spectacular capital of the region of Tuscany, is located on Italy's northwest coast. It is a stunning medieval city divided into two parts by the River Arno that flows from the Apennines through Florence and Pisa and on to the Ligurian Sea. Florence is considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world with its overflow of palaces, churches and museums filled with masterful paintings and sculptures. Florence is justifiably called "the capital of arts". According to statistics produced by UNESCO, 60% of the world's most important works of art are located in Italy and approximately half of these are in Florence. Browsing through Florence's collection of breathtaking architecture, sculpture, monuments, museum and other treasures of art might overwhelm you. However, you should see the Cathedral (i.e. Duomo) with its massive cupola and the bell-tower, which together makes the striking feature of the city. Inside are many important works of art by such artists as Michelangelo, Donatello and Brunelleschi. The Basilica of San Lorenzo dates from 393 and is the oldest church in the city. The church is flanked by the New Sacristy, designed by Michelangelo and houses the Medici family tombs. Some of Florence most important museums are; "Galleria dell'Accademia" which houses famous sculptures by Michelangelo, and Donatello; "Uffizi Gallery" is one of the greatest museums in the world, with works by Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Rubens, Rembrandt and Goya to name a few.

The Cathedral History

The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore in English “Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flowers”, 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 and completed structurally in 1436 with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi.

The Structure

The cathedral of Florence is built as a basilica, having a wide central nave of four square bays, with an aisle on either side. The chancel and transepts are of identical polygonal plan, separated by two smaller polygonal chapels. The whole plan forms a Latin cross. The nave and aisles are separated by wide pointed Gothic arches resting on composite pierss

"Piazza della Signoria" History

Piazza della Signoria is an L-shaped square in front of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy. It was named after the Palazzo della Signoria, also called Palazzo Vecchio. It is the focal point of the origin and of the history of the Florentine Republic and still maintains its reputation as the political hub of the city. It is the meeting place of Florentines as well as the numerous tourists, located near Ponte Vecchio and Piazza del Duomo and gateway to Uffizi Gallery.The statues of Piazza della Signoria are not only decorative value, but also represent a real laic allegorical cycle, unique in its kind in the world, which was supposed to inspire the rulers of the city on their way to the Palazzo Vecchio.

The Square

Piazza della Signoria as the center of the city’s political life is one of the privileged urban spaces for celebrations ceremonies and games, both profane or religious. A special festival is the Fiorita which takes place every year on May 23 to commemorate the burning of Savonarola. After the celebration of Mass in the Chapel of the Priors in the Palazzo Vecchio the Dominicans the municipal authorities and citizens go out in the streets to spread flower petals on the exact spot where Savonarola was hanged and burned. The ceremony comes from the fact that the next day the place of execution was found covered with flowers.

Galleria Degli Uffizi


The Art

The Style

The Paintings

The Uffizi palace consists of two main longitudinal buildings, connected to the south by a shorter side, quite similar, thus giving rise to a “U-shaped” complex, embracing a yard and breaks prospectively towards Piazza della Signoria, with a perfect shot of Palazzo Vecchio and its tower. The three buildings have the same module: In the ground floor there is an architrave portico covered with a barrel vault, made up of bays separated by pillars with niches and divided into three spaces between the two columns placed between the pillars; correspond to that module, three openings in the above fake mezzanine that serve to illuminate the portico and three windows on the first floor which have alternating between triangular pediment and curved gables and range between pilasters. Finally the top floor, the loggia, resumed the tripartite module and would later housed the original “gallery” Uffizi.




Galleria Degli Uffizi

The Uffizi Gallery is a prominent art museum located adjacent to the Piazza della Signoria. The building has a superb collection of priceless artworks, deriving mostly from Medici collection, enriched over the centuries by bequests, donations and exchanges, among them a key group of religious works derived from the suppression of monasteries and convents between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Divided into several rooms set up for concept and styles in chronological order, the exhibition displays works from the twelfth to the eighteenth century, with the world’s best collection of Renaissance works. Inside it is hosted some of the greatest masterpieces of humanity, made by artists ranging from Cimabue to Caravaggio, via Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Mantegna, Titian, Parmigianino, Dürer, Rubens, Rembrandt, Canaletto and Sandro Botticelli.




The "Ponte Vecchio"

Built very close to the Roman crossing, the Ponte Vecchio, or Old Bridge, was until 1218 the only bridge across the Arno in Florence. The current bridge was rebuilt after a flood in 1345. During World War II it was the only bridge across the Arno that the fleeing Germans did not destroy. Instead they blocked access by demolishing the medieval buildings on each side. On November 4, 1966, the bridge miraculously withstood the tremendous weight of water and silt when the Arno once again burst its banks. The Ponte Vecchio, composed of three large segmental arch crossings can not avoid the problem of clogging of the riverbed with piers of the arches, given that it is a bridge with many small crossings, similar to traditional bridges with round arches. Another typical feature is the passage flanked by two row of craft shop, drawn in ancient arcades later closed, as if it were the continuation of the road. The Ponte Vecchio shops are all facing the central passage, each with a single window closed by thick wooden doors, and often have a back room built overhanging the river and supported by corbels.
