Giotto’s bell tower in black and white
A stunning view of Giotto’s tower in piazza Duomo. Isn’t it an unusual perspective?
The first stone was laid in 1334. After the death of Arnolfo di Cambio, who had already projected the cathedral, the works were supervised by the painter Giotto di Bondone. The bell tower of Florence was named after him. The characteristic colourful marbles are really astonishing: the white from Carrara, the green from Prato and the red from Siena. They are the colors of the three theological virtues: faith, hope and charity.
A special thanks goes to the photographer Mauro Macherelli.
