Description

View of the west facade of the Santa Maria del Fiore. "This facade was erected between 1857-87 and designed by Emilio de Fabris and Augustino Conti," by Mary Ann Sullivan, Bluffton University. "...a se­ries of three com­pe­ti­ti­ons were held to mo­dify Giotto's ori­gi­nal de­sign, ke­eping with the main lines of the struc­ture. The chal­lenge for the com­pe­ti­tion was to create a fa­cade which brought to­ge­ther two pe­ri­ods in ar­chi­tec­ture: the Gothic style, which had faded out, and the Renaissance style, which was more re­cent. In 1871, Fabris' de­sign won, and he im­me­dia­tely went to work em­bellis­hing the ca­the­dral with red, green, and white marble," from archInForm website.
