Interiors of Florence Duomo

Florence Duomo is ranked fourth largest in the world. In the huge interior of the duomo I was lost once again just like I was lost in the Milan’s and Bologna’s. The high arches gives an impression of emptiness even though it was crowded inside. Each silent corner, the windows, the statues and even the walls seemed to be telling a tale. Photography was thankfully permitted here, and the photographers’ tribe there went click, click, click.

Sharing with you all some of the shots here… Shots of The Last Judgment (detail) under the dome.

The clock above the entrance was designed in 1443 by Paolo Uccello the uniqueness of this clock is that the 24th hour of the day ended at sunset. Paolo Uccello painted it with quadrant and medallions in 1443. Surprisingly it works even today. It has only one hand that rotates anti-clockwise like the ancient sundial!

The marbled floor, the pattern looked 3D. The marble flooring is said to have been the work of Baccio d’Agnolo and Francesco da Sangallo.
