Big image

Basilica di San Lorence

This piece was created in 1514-1534. It is a building in Florence Italy. The top of the dome that has a nice shape to it. It has a lot of detail to it, and it looks like it has six pillars maybe more. The reason I liked this piece so much is because of the detail that was amazing at the time. It was so significant because it was the first time a dome shape was made. The ism it is skepticism because every on was skeptic about it falling in.
