The ceiling of the Duomo by randjb Star this if you like it!

Painted by Giorgio Vasari, Vincenzo Borghini, and Federico Zuccaro around 1574, the ceiling frescoes cover a wealth of topics from the New Testament and Dante's Divine Comedy. While Dante did not invent the ideas of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory, much of our modern conception of them comes directly from his poem. Many of the Renaissance painters took Dante's words and created the images we associate with judgement day, Satan, and the like.
