San Lorenzo, Firenze

BASILICA DI SAN LORENZO - A masterpiece by the architect Brunelleschi (who also built the dome on the Duomo).  I studied this delight on my OU course. 
Walk past San Lorenzo and you will be disgusted by its unprepossessing, not to say shabby, exterior;  Italian churches often ran out of money before they got around to cladding the outside.  But walk into San Lorenzo and you will marvel at the serenity and elegance of the most restrained and simple design of geometric derived arches and domes.  No fussy pinnacles from gothic, no over decorated pre-Renaissance designs, and certainly not the over gilding of the lily a la Baroque.  This is pure.
