  • Duomo chu want me baby!
.
Ok now that I have you smiling 😊 here's some fun facts about this architecture masterpiece:
*It was previously known as Santa Maria del Fiore, now Duomo di Firenze
*Completely captivated by its beauty, I literally could not take my eyes off it while in its presence (keep scrolling to see proof).
*It is the 3rd largest cathedral in the world. ➡️Can you guess what the first and second are?
*The cathedral took over 140 years to complete with only 16 of those taken to complete the Dome.
*With over 4 million bricks, weighing 40,000+ tons and standing over 10 stories high, it has the largest masonry dome in the world.
*The man who designed and built the dome, Brunelleschi, had no previous architectural training. ➡️Moral of the story: You can do anything you put your mind to!!
*Brunelleschi's name kinda rhymes with mine (last name) #italianstallions 😊
*The incredible neo-gothic exterior of the cathedral that we see today was designed by Emilio de Fabris using only Italian colored marble primarily sourced primarily from Tuscany region.

⭐Who else has been here and were you just as captivated as I?
