  Bronze, but not quite solid
by iandsmith

Favorite thing: No, this is not some pop group we're talking about. Recorded music wasn't invented when these bronze doors were cast.
At first glance you might think they are solid and the dim light certainly enhances that thought but, in reality, there are 48 panels on the two west doors of San Zeno Maggiore.
Those on the left date from 1030 and, after an earthquake, the other side was added in 1137.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
