I love the Duomo, especially for attending Mass and Liturgy of the Hours, but am always a little bit sad that the walls and arches, which most certainly were once painted everywhere with narrative scenes, figures, and architectural forms (still visible in places like Orsanmichele) have been stripped and left grey. I'll have to do some more reading to find out how it happened. But this doesn't lessen the magnificence of Bruneleschi's achievement in the dome.
