Dupont continues to explore the "Decorative Arts of the World" theme with a sumptouos evocation of the Italian Renaissance in general and Florentine Architecture at the time of Medicis in particular, with the famous Duomo.
This new edition demonstrates the scope and precision of S. T Dupont's expertise in the goldsmith's art, but also its firm belief in the renaissance values associated with art and humanism.
