GIOTTO di Bondone
(b. 1267, Vespignano, d. 1337, Firenze)

Design sketch for the Campanile

Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, Florence

This plan shows the design for the bell tower of the Florentine cathedral. It most probably stems from Giotto, who was made "capomaestro" in the year the foundation stone was laid. Only the lowest storey was built according to this plan.
