Florence’s Pazzi Chapel seeks restoration funds via Kickstarter

Pazzi Chapel, a 15th-century landmark within Florence’s Santa Croce complex, is reaching out to potential donors around the world to help fund a much-needed restoration of the chapel’s loggia. The loggia, by Filippo Brunelleschi (but completed by Michelozzo and Guiliano da Maiano) and adorned with colorful tin-glaze terracottas by Luca della Robbia, is deteriorating due to the soft grey sandstone with which it was built. A donation of $10 or more will get your name in the church archives (with higher amount levels including additional perks).
