Cappella dei Principi, Firenze - Toscana

The octagonal Cappella dei Principi surmounted by a tall dome, 59 m. high, is the distinguishing feature of San Lorenzo Church when seen from a distance. It is on the same axis as the nave and chancel to which it provides the equivalent of an apsidal chapel. Its entrance is from the exterior, in Piazza Madonna degli Aldobrandini, and through the low vaulted crypt planned by Bernardo Buontalenti before plans for the chapel above were made.

The opulent Cappella dei Principi, an idea formulated by Cosimo I, was put into effect by Ferdinand I de' Medici. It was designed by Matteo Nigetti, following some sketches tendered to an informal competition of 1602 by Don Giovanni de' Medici, the natural son of Cosimo I, Grand Duke of Tuscany, which were altered in the execution by the aged Buontalenti. A true expression of court art, it was the result of collaboration among designers and patrons.

For the execution of its astonishing revetment of marbles inlaid with colored marbles and semi-precious stone, the Grand Ducal hardstone workshop, the Opificio delle Pietre Dure was established. The art of commessi, as it was called in Florence, assembled jig-sawn fragments of specimen stones to form the designs of the revetment that entirely cover the walls. The result was disapproved of by 18th and 19th century visitors, but has come to be appreciated for an example of the taste of its time.[12] Six grand sarcophagi are empty; the Medici remains are interred in the crypt below. In sixteen compartments of the dado are coats-of-arms of Tuscan cities under Medici control. In the niches that were intended to hold portrait sculptures of Medici, two (Ferdinando I and Cosimo II) were executed by Pietro Tacca (1626–42).

Italian Old Traditions

Is Fassonis, Santa Giusta Ponds, Cabras - Sardegna

Is Fassonis (or Fassois) are boats made from riparian reeds tied together to form flat hulls, about four meters long and one wide, with a pointed bow and truncated stern .
They are reminiscent of the Egyptian papyrus boats.
This type of boats can be seen in use in only two places in the world: the ponds of Santa Giusta and Cabras in Sardinia and Lake Titicaca in Peru

Nuraghe Seruci, Gonnesa - Sardegna

The nuraghe Seruci is an important archaeological site, located in the municipality of Gonnesa, in the Iglesiente region of Sardinia.
The nuraghe is of the complex type, it consists of a central tower surrounded by five other towers, some of which are in good condition. The towers have their summit collapsed but originally their tops were crowned with battlements in stone.

From the nuraghe, being located in a hill of strategic importance, is possible to observe the entire surrounding area.
The nuraghe is surrounded by a village, one of the largest in Sardinia, with about a hundred huts grouped in "residential areas" divided by narrow streets. The huts are circular and in some of them is possible to see the use of architectural solutions that are rarely found in the other nuraghic villages; for example the use of partition walls inside of the huts and the addition of other environments of varying shape around the usual living environment.

At the center of the village is located a hut of vast size that probably was the meeting hut of the community.

Near the village and the nuraghe are also present at least three giants' tomb, the typical burials of nuragic Sardinia.
