The marble floor of the Cathedral of Siena
The Siena Cathedral is one of the most famous examples of Italian Romanesque-Gothic cathedrals. The long and complex history of its construction corresponds well with the creation of its marble floor which lasted six centuries from the 1300s to the 1800s. The marble floor, consisting of 58 main scenes framed by decorations, was built with local ornamental stones.
