The last week before Christmas break, is time to manage my own timetable and work on it! This week we have a theme for art visit- “The Secret of Florence I”. Barbara have took us discern the special Florentina buildings, painting and sculpture.
The Romanesque architecture style of the secret façade before Gothic style. San Salvatore al Vescovo is was the first 11th century church located in Florence. The green marble highlights that it is the same period with San Miniato al Monte and Santa Maria Novella.
The following we walk beside the Florence Duomo, and that is a story about the white marble on the floor. The white marble is record the huge gold ball on the top of Duomo was struck by lightning 100 years ago, and the ball roll down the dome and drop on the point which the white marble places it.
Next, we stop by in front of Palazzo Vecchio. The secret bas-relief face on the facade wall show Michelangelo Bounarroti face.
After then we when into the Piazza della Signoria and look at the “Perseus with the Head of Medusa”. The bronze sculpture is made by Benvenuto Cellini. The special thing if you want to know if this is Cellini create work you can stand behind the sculpture and discover there is a face of Cellini to prove that is his work.
Unconsciously, we in the Ponte Vecchio, and Barbara show us one of the church name “Chiesa di San Jacopo Soprarno”. It was a Romanesque style church built in 10th-11th centuries. The church damaged when the Arno River flooded in 1966. Hope we can visit the interior part on next art visit.
