It puts the Duomo, which is opposite in the shade. The domed ceiling is stunning and I laid back in the seats provided until cramp set in, the roof begs a long hard look to see the brilliance of the painting and the story it unfolds. I photographed it from every conceivable angle, but nothing does the ceiling justice in the way that laying back and looking at it does.
Humbling to think how long it has stood there and how the artist's work is still here after hundreds of years as a testament to his time on earth. I would like to think I could leave a memory behind for so long, unfortunately I am far less gifted.
