With all the content I produced in my trip to Florence, a proper tribute to the indisputable hero of its skyline, the Duomo di Firenze, had to be made!
And here I’m doing what no Florentine has ever done before.: All 1000+ steps of the Florence Duomo in one day! To give you all the beautiful views of Florence from above 🙂
As you know, I’ve had the opportunity to test Fujifilm’s new medium format camera, the GFX 50S II, and I took it to my hometown Florence (Italy) to give you the best possible content. Here I pay a long time due tribute to the city where I was born and I’m so thankful I was able to capture it in such magnificence with the Fujifilm GFX 50S II (and the great weather).
The previous 2 videos of the series are available here and here. And I wrote about my experience on Fujifilm’s official blog here.
As I said to a tourist on top of the Cupola, even though I was born in Florence I’m still experiencing new things every time I visit.
This Summer, the Terraces of the Florence Duomo were open to the public, something that I never saw happening before.
And so I went for a full tour of the Duomo di Firenze: Terraces, Campanile di Giotto (the bell tower) and of course the Cupola del Brunelleschi (the dome). A total of 1026 steps!
Not forgetting some views of the inside as well.
And because I want you to experience it all, I’m adding useful, interesting and fun information in the video. You’ll see a few popups here and there 😉 For example, did you know that Filippo Brunelleschi, who engineered the dome, had no prior experience in Architecture? Yep. And yet he produced one of the most amazing pieces of the Renaissance and the indisputable symbol of the city skyline!
And for those who look for Fujifilm GFX 50S II photo examples, there’s plenty in this video!
This Duomo di Firenze video is the 3rd episode of this GFX series and it’s getting better and better. So, please don’t forget to subscribe for even more content!
By the way, have you ever visited the Florence Duomo? Or even been to the city for holiday? It’s definitely a must!
