Architecture--Italian edition

I know that this blog occasionally drifts into negative territory. The subject matter can be depressing, the tone can be cynical and sarcastic, and the graphic content is often lacking. But, ultimately, I enjoy architecture, and if you want it, then here it is.

My one comment on this masterpiece is that this building is in nearly all respects an exterior experience. If the cathedral were filled up with concrete, or turned into a shopping mall, I doubt the city would lose a dime of tourist revenue. Oh heck, I just went cynical again....
