    Default Donatello's Wood Crucifix at Santa Croce: am I the only one who is fussy about this?

    Hi all,
    I've decided to just alert folks that you can not actually view Donatello's crucifix at Santa Croce as it's blocked off for people praying, plus it's behind a black cage.

    I hope some day they move it so we can view it.
    Cheers,
    Suzanne

    Buongiorno,

    I get you, sometimes you just want to see things up close and in detail.

    Unfortunately, we have seen it time and time again, there are a few admirers who are not as cautious about their "admiration technique".

    I have no secret suggestions on how to get close and personal with these pieces - however, if you really are interested in Donatello, maybe you can follow this itinerary and see some of his other works just a bit closer: https://www.visitflorence.com/itiner...-florence.html

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise
