Tomm and Danise in Italy: Monday, December 29

Sunny and progressively more mild today to the point where by early
evening, scarves, hats and gloves are no longer mandatory.

We check out the antiquities from the original Duomo, like statues of
the original evangelists by Donatello and an unfinished version of the
Pieta by Michaelangelo in which he gave the figure of Nicodemus his
own facial features. Curiously, some homoerotic artwork as well.

More to come ....
