The temple of San Giovanni, the Florence Baptistry, has an incredible story of architectural evolution attached to it and it can be approached as a case study regarding national cultural appropriations. As the temple -now a touristic sensation that fills memorabilia and decorative artsy merchandise- was developed through the ages, a variety of cultural elements formed it, including forms and patterns that tend to be excluded from italian national narratives and included in those of other neighbouring countries.
