The site of Tuscany's St. Michele Church of Lucca has seen numerous prominent historical figures including the composer, Puccini. Its construction spanned from the eleventh century to the fourteenth, when the facade was completed. Its unique facade boasts busts of famous men from its era, a unique feature for a classic Italian church. The Archangel Michael aptly stands atop the church; the building is dedicated to him. The wondrous facade, which is taller than the actual church, is composed of many metallic elements so that it can better resist the winds.
