#Luglio 2017 La Porta del Paradiso è più vicina di quanto si pensi. Venne definita così infatti, nentemeno che da Michelangelo Buonarroti, la porta est del Battistero di Firenze, realizzata da Lorenzo Ghiberti tra il 1425 e il 1452. A secoli di distanza questa #porta resta uno dei capolavori del Rinascimento e della storia dell'arte italiana.
