The Ghiberti Doors is a Limited Edition collector's plates by Maestro Alberto Santangela. Sponsored by the prestigious Musio del Duomo of Florence, Italy. Crafted in ivory alabaster, inspired by the incomparable bronze North Doors of San Giovanni Baptistery in Florence, which were originally created by Lorenzo Ghiberti between the years 1401 and 1424.
