THE MARBLE FLOOR OF THE DUOMO

Duomo di Siena

The wonder of the Duomo was created between 1369 and 1562. Forty painters executed the preparatory drawings and masters in stonework translated those images on the floor with multi-colored  Sienese marbles. It is divided into 56 panels. On the nave we can meet pagan philosophers, on the lateral sides the Sybils, on the transept and in the apse the major Old Testament figures.
