Reviews about Chiesa e Museo di Orsanmichele

门子乀

4/5
Reviewed on 1 Sep 2014

It was originally a grain market, but later became a church of Florence's guilds. The guilds are responsible for donating statues of their own saints to decorate the facade of the church. Many of them are famous writers, such as Gibberti, the author of the "Gate of Heaven", who carved John the Baptist of the wool merchants'guild and St. Matthew the saint of the guild; Donatello, a famous sculptor, carved St. George the saint of the arms manufacturing guild. 。 But these sculptures have been preserved in museums, where they are all replicas.
