Article about the building of Brunelleschi's dome on the Duomo in Florence

Jump to last reply

Check out the February issue of National Geographic for a most interesting article about the construction of this historic and magnificent structure. It brought back the cherished memory of my wife and I climbing the 473 steps (yes, I still remember that exact number!) to reach the top. It's still one one of our most cherished travel experiences.

PS: The February 12 Nova episode on PBS will will detail exactly how Brunelleschi built the dome.
