The interior of the Duomo is faced with black and white marble and has a gilded ceiling and a frescoed dome. It was largely redecorated after a fire in 1595, which destroyed most of the medieval art works.
Galileo is believed to have formulated his theory about the movement of a pendulum by watching the swinging of the incense lamp (not the present one) hanging from the ceiling of the nave. That lamp, smaller and simpler than the present one, it is now kept in the Camposanto, in the Aulla chapel.The Lizard
100 days before the high school graduation, students go and touch the two-tailed bronze lizard on the main door of the Cathedral in Piazza dei Miracoli. According to the tradition, this animal would be a sort of lucky charm for graduating students and it is so consumed that its head has completely become goldish, whereas the rest of the door is oxide-green.
The legend tells that even the other little animals on the left side of the door would be luckycharms, such as the dog and the frog.

    Gracias Pilar.El gran mosaico del ábside con Cristo en majestad, rodeado por la Virgen y San Juan Evangelista fue terminado con el rostro de san Juan por Cimabue en 1302, y sobrevivió milagrosamente al incendio de 1595. El San Juan Evangelista es la última obra realizada por él antes de la muerte y una de las pocas de las que existe documentación certificada. Evoca los mosaicos de las iglesias bizantinas y normandas, como la de Cefalú y Monreale, en Sicilia.

    Entre las obras medievales que escaparon al incendio figuran el fresco La Virgen con el Niño del pisano Maestro de San Torpè en el arco triunfal, y bajo él el pavimento cosmatesco, realmente raro fuera del Lacio. Fue realizado con teselas de mármol usando temas geométricos en opus alexandrinum (mitad del siglo XII).Un abrazo y mil GRACIAS

Pisa Nel Campo dei Miracoli5

  1. 1. 11
  2. 2. The Piazza del Duomo ("Cathedral Square") is a wide, walled area at the heart of the city of Pisa, Tuscany, Italy, recognized as one of the main centers for medieval art in the world.
  3. 3. The heart of the Piazza del Duomo is, obviously, the Duomo, the medieval cathedral, entitled to Santa Maria Assunta, a five-naved cathedral with a three-naved transept.
  4. 4. The massive bronze main doors were made in the workshops of Giambologna, replacing the original doors destroyed in a fire in 1595.
  5. 5. Foto internet
  6. 6. The church also contains the bones of St Ranieri, Pisa's patron saint, and the tomb of the Holy Roman Emperor Henry VII, carved by Tino da Camaino in 1315. That tomb, originally in the apse just behind the main altar, was disassembled and changed position many times during the years for political reasons
  7. 7. In the Cathedral also can be found some relics brought during the Crusades: the remains of three Saints (Abibo, Gamaliel and Nicodemus) and a vase that it is said to be one of the jars of Cana.
  8. 8. Galileo is believed to have formulated his theory about the movement of a pendulum by watching the swinging of the incense lamp (not the present one) hanging from the ceiling of the nave. That lamp, smaller and simpler than the present one, it is now kept in the Camposanto
  9. 9. The interior is faced with black and white marble and has a gilded ceiling and a frescoed dome. It was largely redecorated after a fire in 1595, which destroyed most of the medieval art works.
  10. 10. Fortunately, the impressive mosaic, in the apse, of Christ in Majesty, flanked by the Blessed Virgin and St. John the Evangelist, survived the fire. It evokes the mosaics in the church of Monreale, Sicily. Although it is said that the mosaic was done by Cimabue, only the head of St. John was done by the artist in 1302 and was his last work, since he died in Pisa in the same year.
  11. 11. Pope Gregory VIII was also buried in the cathedral. The fire in 1595 destroyed his tomb
  12. 12. The impressive granite Corinthian columns between the nave and the aisle came originally from the mosque of Palermo, captured by the Pisans in 1063.
  13. 13. The building, as have several in Pisa, has tilted slightly since its construction.
