Dieci volte Firenze.epub, eBook, Monographs
by Pier Francesco Listri
Ten themes, ten reasons to talk about Florence.Ten great general topics that can illustrate the city’s charm to readers. Ten subjects along which to sketch out a path to give even the most informed reader the pleasure of discovery.In fact, the text always ends up finding a pretext to explore the details we don’t seem to notice, the little alley far from the crowds and the forgotten anecdote through which to show a hidden and little-known side of Florence. First we get an overview of places with their “physical” characteristics, but then they are immediately revealed in their wealth of history and through the voices of the figures and artists who have forged their prestige. We see the revival of artisanal Florence and the events marking its splendour, as if evoking them meant bringing all this back to life, up to the excellences of today. And then there’s the Florence of travellers and palazzi, of gardens and artists, in continuous and delightsome wanderings that will intrigue readers and offer far more information and insight than many strictly “historical” texts. The book features numerous illustrations.
