There are many memorable sites in Settignano, a frazoine (parish) overlooking the Arno valley and Florence, Italy. This diminutive door along the road to Villa Gamberaia, home of one of Italy’s most perfect gardens, is one of them. Measuring about 62 inches tall and 18 inches wide, even I would have to stoop under its lintel.
Settiganano produced three sculptors of the Florentine Renaissance, Desiderio de Settignano and the Gamberini brothers, Bernardo Rossellino and Antonio Rossellino. It was also an early home to a young Michelangelo.
