A brainteaser from our Leonardo da Vinci collection is emblazoned on the imposing and famous basilica of Santa Croce in Florence.
Our wooden 3D puzzle consists of 6 pieces with an ingenious interlocking system and is part of the mini puzzle series ... great fun in a small format.
The homonymous Basilica, on the other hand, is anything but small. Indeed, it is the largest Franciscan church in the world, famous above all for its 16 chapels decorated by great artists of the Italian Renaissance and the presence of several tombs and cenotaphs belonging to famous people buried there.
So famous that it gave Santa Croce the name of Florentine Pantheon or our local Westminster Abbey. A temple of Italian Glories.
Some names? Michelangelo, Vittorio Alfieri, Ugo Foscolo.
The remains of Galileo Galilei were brought to the basilica 95 years after his death.
Few people know that even the square in front of the Basilica takes its name from it.
