App Store Description

A journey inside a dream, a journey into the history of a project that was never completed: the New Cathedral, a major construction project that got off the ground in 1339 but was abandoned for good in 1357.

The plague, a lack of financial resources and structural failure all helped to put paid to a project that meant much more to the Sienese than a mere extension to their old Cathedral. The New Cathedral was supposed to bring fame and glory to the old Republic. The unfinished façade, the pillars, the capitals and the bases of the piers are today a fabulous skeleton testifying to a wonderful dream that never was.

Download the New Cathedral (Duomo Nuovo) app to explore the three aisles that were never built and to wonder at the vaults that would have ceiled the new Cathedral, on a virtual tour of what would have been the largest church in the whole of Christendom.
