Florence Cathedral

Location: Florence, Italy

Architect: Arnolfo di Cambio and Filippo Brunelleschi

Year Completed: 1436

The Florence Cathedral is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Florence. This cathedral was built upon the remains of the fourth century cathedral of Santa Reparata. The Florence Cathedral was initially designed by Arnolfo di Cambio in 1296, but its main feature, the massive dome, was designed by Filippo Brunelleschi. Brunelleschi won a design competition for Florence designers and architects, and construction on the dome began in 1420 and was completed in 1436.
