Sitting at the feet of Dante
Santa Croce had a special role in Florentine life: it was fashionalble to be buried here, so tombstones and memorials to the great and good are a prominent feature inside the church, including Dante, Macchiavelli and Marconi. There is also much beautiful artwork evident in the chapels and the Museum of Restoration, while in one area within its walls is the School of Leatherworkers. We saw some exquisite artworks here, many restored after the severe flooding of Florence in 1966.
I love the patterns of this ironwork
