The jump

By gss  
A picture showing the style jump from Gothic to Renaissance; in fact the jump is illustrated in 2 pictures [today and tomorrow]. Today only "a small preview" of the tomorrow picture.
Florence [Firenze, Florenta in Romanian]. The main object in the picture, the Basilica di Santa Croce is the largest Franciscan church in the world. It has 16 chapels; one of them can be seen in the right-bottom corner - its tower - and it is called "Capella dei Pazzi". The Basilica was built in the late Gothic Tuscan style, but the main facade was totally changed into a neo-Gothic style, inspired from the Siena and Florence domes. The Chapel of the Pazzi family, is a Renaissance jewel, one of the most elegant churches in the Florence Renaissance. The tower was built in the XIX century.
