Opera del Duomo di Firenze: we are in Florence, in Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square), setting of Museo dell’Opera, designed by Adolfo Natalini, architect and pioneer of the radical architecture movement in 1960s.

The site was formerly occupied by artists’ studios, including Michelangelo, who sculpted the David right there in 1504. Later in 1779, it became a theatre, known as the intrepid’s theatre.
The current project anticipates the full reconstruction of two internal façades; the original one of the Duomo (Cathedral) of Florence, in marble dust, and one entirely in Bianco P marble, made by Savema, that guests the 3 doors of the Baptistry and 30 windows.

The choice of Bianco P marble came from the need of using a solid white marble with light shades beneath, characteristic of this precious marble.

What was once a theatre today is the stage where the greatest works of Renaissance main artists are staged.
