Welcome to Florence, Italy!
The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, commonly known as "Il Duomo", is one of the most magnificent churches in Italy and the world. It was begun in 1296 in Gothic style and completed in 1436 with the dome engineered by Filippo Brunelleschi, a masterpiece of architecture and world landmark. Because of its enormous size and detail, it was a very ambitious project that took more than a century, and so it has several styles as time passed by. The Gothic Revival style can be seen in the façade, buttresses and interior. However, this cathedral shows the first features of what would be the Renaissance style, as latter architects wanted to break away from the Gothic. It is, along with the Campanile and Baptistery, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. (based on Wikipedia's entry).

This model is support-free. The scale is rather big compared to our other models because the actual Cathedral is huge, and to show more of the intricate detail. Downscaling works too although some detail might be lost. We recommend printing at 70 microns or better.
