Florence Diaries. Day-28.

L1001834-2

Made a field trip to Pisa. This is my first visit to Pisa and the place lived up to its billing as one of the seven wonders of the world. Some of the sculptures seemed to preempt the Renaissance style to me. Giovanni Pisano may be one of the most underappreciated pre-renaissance artist. The relief work on the pulpit of the Pisa cathedral seem to have a similar style of the great baptistery doors of Florence.

Back to Florence in the evening and Piazza San Giovanni was packed with action.
