Duomo Review

Dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin, the Duomo is an object lesson in the evolution of Gothic architecture. Built in the early 14th century, it is decorated so as to emphasize geometry and verticality: pointed arches and narrow vaults contrast with the earlier, Romanesque attention to balance and symmetry. The porch on the south side of the cathedral facing the square was built in 1470 and represents the Gothic style at its most florid and excessive.
