The magnificent Cathedral of Florence, dedicated to Santa Maria del Fiore, is the fruit of the commitment of a large number of artists who worked on it over a period of centuries. In 1294, the Art Guilds, that supported the government of the city, decided that Arnolfo di Cambio should construct a new cathedral of Florence. The old cathedral, Santa Reparata, was too small to house the citizens since in the 13th century commune of Florence was already flourishing. Santa Reparata continued being the cathedral until 1375.
