The first view is when we walked up to the Duomo today surprised me because it didn’t look familiar. It was so bright and so decorated.
Then the dome came into view and I recognized it, but it really didn’t look like I remembered it.
The third picture shows a little area with a weaver at a loom. How would you think one could find this tiny spot in the enormous church!
Then we discovered that part of the building was still very dirty. That’s why everything looked so different. It had been cleaned. It is really striking to see the dirty and clean areas next to each other.
