There’s this cathedral in Florence, Italy and it’s caught my eye.  It’s so unique in it’s architecture and design to other buildings here.  You can see this building peaking its dome out between the narrow streets and it’s overwhelming when you break through the tall buildings into the open piazza.

Formally known as The Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, but commonly called Duomo di Firenzi, this building has my heart.  I get giddy when I see its dome from my kitchen window.  My mouth drops in awe as I watch the sun set over it.  I gasp every time I enter its piazza and try to take in all its beauty.

Am I a little obsessed?  Maybe.  But the Duomo deserves it.
