On this day in 1339, the General Council of Siena voted to accept the extraordinarily ambitious “Duomo Nuovo" project for Siena Cathedral. The Sienese had already decided in 1316 to expand their Duomo with a new choir extending for two bays over a baptistery built into the hillside below as a foundation (see plan, c). Doubts were raised about the project’s feasibility, and a committee of experts (including three Florentines) advised the Cathedral Works to abandon the plan and build a new, larger building. The Sienese solution was to transform the existing structure into a large transept, building a new, enormous nave on the southeast flank (see plan, d). Just over 60% of the council members approved the plan; and the project would ultimately fail. Though partly vaulted by mid-century, the piers and vaults of the new north aisle were demolished after 1357 when they were assessed to be defective. The south aisle and facciatone (enormous facade) are still preserved today, housing the Opera del Duomo museum and standing as a testament to Sienese civic pride, ambition, and hubris.
Siena, plan of the present cathedral, begun after 1215, and the Duomo Nuovo, c. 1339–48: (a) crypt; (b) bell-tower; (c) choir extension over baptistery; (d) Duomo Nuovo; (e) dome; (f) Piccolomini Library; (g) sacristy

One of my favourite anecdotes regarding Sienna. This is why Florence won. You guys were just kinda bad at decision making. Smooth recovery though, great job. italianartsociety:

making a scary disease easier to talk about

you all heard about the ice bucket challenge in social medias. but did you spent time to think about what ALS means? Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (It’s a neurodegenerative disease with various causes. It is characterised by muscle spasticity, rapidly progressive weakness due to muscle atrophy, difficulty in speaking (dysarthria), swallowing (dysphagia), and breathing (dyspnea).)

In this video you see a young man, who was diagnosed with ALS some months ago, It runs in his family (his mother and grandmother) and you get a glimpse into the life with ALS.

The icebucket challenge may be annoying for some but it’s raising awareness for the people suffering from this disease and maybe it helps a bit to find a cure.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anyone else to feel like that.

Dead Cassette Tapes Reincarnated As Skeletons by Brian Dettmer
Brian Dettmer is an American contemporary artist famous for utilizing old products in his sculptures. He has recently been doing a lot with books, but early on used records and glass. In his 2006 collection he uses cassette tapes to create a musical skeleton. He keeps the words legible, twisting and altering the tapes to accept his form. The cassettes are all white with black text, and when melted can be shaped like clay. He has two skulls with specific genres of tapes on them: Women of Pop and 80’s Metal. His full skeleton is formed with tapes like The Police, The Knack, and a few best of editions. To Dettmer, the skeletons represent a people who cannot live without music. The cassette skeletons show an extreme understanding of bone structure and exemplify his great ability to shift materials.
