Scale model of Brunelleschi dome found in Florence


Florence, December 14 - Experts said Friday they
believed they had uncovered a scale model of the famous masonry
dome of Florence's S. Maria del Fiore designed by Filippo
Brunelleschi during excavations to expand the cathedral museum.
The dig brought to light an area that may have served as a
workshop for the construction of the dome, containing a model
measuring three metres in circumference and made of bricks
arranged in a herringbone pattern, just like the 15th-century
dome itself.
The discovery was presented during an official site visit
to the Duomo museum.
