I have studied Interior Design and basic fine arts at the University of Central Missouri, the United States.

Otherwise, I love meeting new people and culture, especially Italy does makes everything classy (beautiful). I like being in Firenze so far.

Image #23-31: We have been in the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore for the Friday Art Visit. They spent 150 years to complete it. They started exterior and facade with the gorgeous decoration. Then they built the columns and the alter. This cattedrale is famous for the cupola by Brunelleschi. Before he made the cupola, he went to join the construction project of the parthenon in Rome. The dome at the parthenon became the model of the cupola because he learned how to make the dome shaped roof work. Because Brunelleschi took time to learn to make perfect cupola, the catedrale took more time to be completed.
