According to the tradition, the early Basilica, which was the oldest Florentine Cathedral, was consecrated by St. Ambrogio in 393 and was dedicated to the martyr Lorenzo (Saint Lawrence). The imposing Basilica we see today is the result of the radical renovation started in 1418 by Giovanni di Bicci, founder of the Medici's family.
