Florence Baptistery - Review

The Florence Baptistery or nationally known as the Battistero di San Giovanni, is a religious building situated in Florence, Italy, which has been designated as the status of a small basilica. The octagonal Baptistryis situated in both the provinces of the Piazza del Duomo and the Piazza di San Giovanni, crosswise over from the Duomo house of God and the Giotto bell tower  or the Campanile di Giotto. It is regarded as one of the most heritage structures in the city, constructed between the years from 1059 and 1128. The structural planning is based upon the Florentine Romanesque style. Florentine style has not witnessed the consolidation of the Pisan Romanesque or Lombard, on the other hand, its impact was conclusive for the consequent advancement of building design, as it framed the foundation of the introduction of Francesco Talenti, Leon Battista Alberti, Filippo Brunelleschi and the different planners who contributed the Renaissance structural planning.The Church of the Holy Apostles had been established it published for its extensive size.
