The Orsanmichele is a basilica situated in the Italian city of Florence. The building was built on the site of the kitchen arrangement of the cloister of San Michele, which has been taken down presently. Situated upon the Via Calzaiuoli in Florence, the church was initially constructed in 1337 by Francesco Talenti as a grain trading zone. He was assisted by the famous native architects named Neri di Fioravante, Benci di Cione and a few others. Duringthe span from 1380 to 1404, the building had been transformed into a church which has ever since been regarded as a famous basilica of Florence's compelling specialty and exchange organizations. The ground storey of the square building houses the thirteenth century architectural curves that basically framed the loggia of the grain business. The second floor had been structured for accommodating work places, while the third floor accommodated one of the city's major civil grain storage facilities, upheld to withstand starvation or siege. Later during the fourteenth century, the organizations were charged by the city for the requisition of statues to adorn the fronts of the church.
- The veneers had borne 14 magnificent architectures which were filled during the stretch from 1399 to 1430. The three of the wealthiest societies had taken the responsibility to cast the statues in bronze, which required more or less ten times the measure of the original stone figures.

An ancient and beautiful church. Not one of the richest or most luxurious in Florence, but still stunning and there is no need to wait in line to enter. It's worth a quick stop, if only to cool off a bit of the heat outside.
Beautiful, definitely recommendable. Wheelchair accessible. Payment with (NFC) debit or credit card is possible.
A different church. Outside a square building, inside an incredible example of medieval art.
Was following the free Rick Steve’s Audio tour of Renaissance and came upon this church with it’s famous sculptures around all 4 sides, including works by Donotello, Ghinerti, and Verrochio, as well as the first freestanding bronze statue since antiquity. The inside of the church (free admission) with its two naves is interesting, too. Definitely stop on the way from the Duomo to the Uffizi Galleries.
