Nova: The Great Cathedral Mystery

The award-winning PBS show looks at the famous Duomo (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore) of Florence, Italy.


  1. This is a great program, but it has been out there for several years now.

  2. This was amazing. It may have been out there a while, but it is the first time I have seen it. Now i have other questions about empty spaces in the wall and the drain holes that appear on the sites... was that to reduce the weight, was it just to shed water or snow (if Florence gets any) and would there have been a better way. What about the outer wall, was it put up at the same time... questions, questions, questions... really amazing though. I would love to see more on this.

  3. This was great. I leads me to have a lot more questions about the outer dome and how and when it was created and some other questions about the open spaces in the current builds...
