The Florence section has been completely rebuilt, with hundreds of new images.
The result of a 650 hour project, this section consists of 12 pages and five index pages,
housing 615 images, each thoroughly captioned as a result of over 450 hours of research.
There are separate sections for the Cathedral of Florence (Duomo), with pages on the
Architectural Details; Architectural Scenics and Sculptures; the Baptistry of St. John;
and Giotto’s Campanile (bell tower). A separate section contains three pages on
the Churches of Florence. One page is a detailed presentation of Santa Croce,
the Pantheon of Florence. Another page details the Basilica of San Lorenzo,
parish church of the Medici, and the third page shows exteriors and some
interiors of several of the other important churches in Florence. There is a
separate section on the Palazzo Vecchio (Old Palace), with two pages
showing the Architecture and Art of the public spaces other than the
private residence, and a page on the Apartment of the Elements,
the residence of Cosimo I de’ Medici and Eleonora di Toledo.
Three separate pages give detailed presentations on the
Sculptures of Florence; Florentine Scenery; and the last
page is on the Palazzo Pitti’s Boboli Gardens and the
Grotta Grande (also called the Grotto of Buontalenti).
The Florence Select page is a Master Index to each of the other pages, hyperlinked to sections of the page.
You can still visit each page as if it were a standard Gallery page... each page has its own hyperlinked Index.
