Battistero
 

The Baptistery of S. Giovanni was the core of the spiritual life from the beginning and it is still today a monument identity for the florentine citizens. Extraordinary masterpiece of architecture, its decoration has engaged several generations of artists, who made it thus the mirror of the main city experiences: from the Romanesque facing with white and green marble to the Mannerism of the sculptural groups (that are today preserved inside the Museum of the Opera del Duomo), from the byzantine and medieval art of mosaic to the three big bronze doors, where we can admire the Gothic style of Andrea Pisano and the multiform and refined genius of Lorenzo Ghiberti.
