three centuries?[edit]

i am writing an essay about the duomo and i've noticed that the construction didn't last for "almost 3 centuries" but i fact a bit over two (1292(the year of the laying of the flagstone) - 1503). if there is more to it, it isn't mentioned and there are no other signs of being any other additions(save the conservation reconstructions). i'll wait for few days for an answer and then, if there won't be any, i'll change the figures.--PrimEviL 04:43, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

  • You were right pointing this out. I've changed the text into "lasted just over two centuries". This is closer to the reality. JoJan (talk) 19:35, 11 December 2008 (UTC)
Ah, well... it turned out i was wrong... the work on the cathedral in fact DID last for ~three centuries... it's just that here aren't listed all the stages of the construction - http://www.comune.orvieto.tr.it/i/389FDC6E.htm here i've found the mention of 1607 as the year of completition of the spires. Let me know if you can't read italian, i'll translate it here and deploy it in the article.--PrimEviL 06:33, 12 December 2008 (UTC)
I've added the relevant information to the article. JoJan (talk) 16:28, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Nebbia[edit]

There is a mistake in this information: "Above this decoration are glittering mosaics created between 1350 and 1390 after designs by artist Cesare Nebbia". Nebbia was a Mannerist artist. Ricardo Frantz (talk) 20:03, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
