The expansion of the Museo dell’Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore in 2013-2015 was an opportunity to rethink the general role played by the Cathedral Foundation in promoting and preserving the monuments it oversees: the Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Cathedral or Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore, and Giotto’s Bell Tower. The decidedly narrative approach of the museum’s new installation project suggested the need to ‘narrate’ the churches to which the works in the museum refer, andthus to consider the entire monumental complex of Piazza del Duomo an enormous museum, providing visitors with interpretative instruments that can offer insight into its main contents and stylistic elements. 

This comprehensive two-volume guide is one of those instruments.

I.  The Cathedral, the Baptistery, the Bell Tower
