Italy: Florence By Michael Korfhage, Joel Anderson, 2012
- Italy: Florence
Did you know that the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore took over 140 years to complete? And it wasn’t for lack of support or excitement for the cathedral that made it take so long either. Rather, the technology to complete the domed roof of the cathedral simply did not exist when the cathedral was first conceptualized in 1293. But the Florentines started building it anyway! Seeking to pay tribute to the structure, Anderson Design Group crafted vintage travel poster art of the cathedral, a classic rendition of the famous building in the art styles of the early-1900s. You can order this retro artwork as a canvas banner, art print, metal sign, or even as a set of notecards or postcards to save on wall space.
