Florence has many Medieval and Renaissance buildings of great historical significance that nevertheless exemplify a particular architectural "disorder": their facades were never completed. A distinguished architectural historian has defined it as "a facade complex." This lecture will explore the enigma of the unfinished facade and the failure of the city to come to terms with its own architectural history.
