I Due Duomi: The Cathedrals of Orvieto & Siena
with Carla Gambescia

With religious roots as old as the dawn of modern civilization, Italy teems with churches central to the identities of cities that built them. Naturally, visitors flock to St Peter’s in Rome, St.Mark’s in Venice and Florence’s Duomo which defined Italian Renaissance architecture with its revolutionary dome and unmistakable silhouette.

Less universally identifiable, but unmistakably Italian, is the glittering mosaic-covered facade of the Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta of the small Umbrian city of Orvieto and Siena’s magnificent edifice by the same name which stands among of the finest Gothic cathedrals in all of Europe with an interior resplendent with frescoes and floor mosaics without equal.

Join us for a virtual mini-vacation as we explore the fascinating histories and treasures of these due duomi with lecturer, travel writer and photographer Carla Gambescia.
