"Giant paintings inside the Duomo" Top 5 Page for this destination Duomo Santa Maria Assunta - Cathedral Tip by globetrott

 
 

Watch out for the giant paintings in the Duomo Santa Maria Assunta.
Paintings by artists like Andrea del Sarto, Sodoma, Rosseli and Torelli were used in order to hide the frescos that were destroyed by a fire in the 17th century.
I think, these paintings match perfectely with the architecture of the 12th century.
