Good morning Florence, from me and John Ruskin: The First Morning: Santa Croce

2013.10..28 Santa Croce, first morningThe First Morning: Santa Croce"
"Wait then for an entirely bright morning; rise with the sun, and go to Santa Croce, with a good opera-glass in your pocket, with which you shall for once, at any rate, see an opus; and, if you have time, several opera.
...
Santa Croce is, somehow, the ugliest Gothic church you ever were in. Well, that is really so; and now, will you take the pains to see why?" - John Ruskin, Mornings in Florence (1881)
