Amazing church in FlorenceHi there, I have been to Florence and I want to come back. I saw this amazing either church or building that had gigantic white marble columns ( I think they were round) and had approximately 15 metre High (at least double the size of the statue of David in Accademia) sculptures on the front of each column. The two sets of columns where all the way down the length of the room, one set of columns to the left and one set of columns to the right. All the columns and sculptures adorning the columns were white. They were massive I think the biggest sculptures I have ever seen. I don't think it was one of the most popular sights but I am dying to go back their. Please, Please help I have spent two days trying to go through the internals of all churches and Duomo to find it again. You can skype me on vanessa williams w72 I would love to explain it to you as well in case this would help. I am desperate. I can also organise to send you a sketch of it in case you are not sure what building I am talking about.
