    Description :

    “Piazza del Duomo, Pistoia’s main square, is dominated by the Duomo (San Zeno) and its bulky 12th-century campanile, originally built as a watchtower in the city walls. The interior of the Duomo is rich in funerary monuments. The finest of these, in the south aisle, is the tomb of Cino da Pistoia. He was a friend of Dante and fellow poet, and is depicted in a relief (1337) lecturing to a class of young boys.”

    Eyewitness Travel – Italy, DK, 2006, p. 327.


    “Even the charms and treasures of Pistoia went unappreciated. On his way to Florence from Lucca, Evelyn stopped to dine there and commented laconically in his journal, ‘besides one church, there was little observable’.”

    Hibbert, Christopher: The Grand Tour, Spring Books, 1974, s. 114.
