Photo diary: Sunday in Firenze

Andy in the Oltrarno

 

Tables being set for one gigantic feast -- wedding? block party?

At the Brancacci Chapel in Santa Maria dei Carmine, one of the many astonishing Masaccio frescoes -- much naked male flesh on display, including this scene of "Baptizing the Novices" (wonderful euphemism)

lots of witty street art

the Lilies room at the Palazzo Vecchio

Putti with Dolphin, also at Palazzo Vecchio

Ditto this sculpture, featuring a hold you don't see in most wrestling matches

an unsettling, smirky Madonna with Child from 1430 by an artist with the unlikely name of Maestro Della Crocifissione Griggs
