Baptistery
The Battistero di San Giovanni (Baptistery of St John) is a religious edifice in Florence, Tuscany, Italy. Believed to be the oldest building in the city, it is particularly famed for its three sets of magnificent and artistically important bronze doors. It is in the Piazza del Duomo, in front of the Cathedral of Saint Maria del Fiore.

The Hells Doors (Doors East) are most famous and had been sculptured in 1425 for Lorenzo Ghiberti.

They are ten panels with scenes of the Old Will and that they had used the new technique of the perspective so that the panels acquired depth
