Florence, Italy

Text by Ingrid K.Williams, executive summary by darmansjah

Since 2009, the Mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, launched a reform movement that accommodates a rich history of the city. Palazzo Strozzi, 15-century-old building, now holds Strozzina Center for Contemporary Culture. Spazi Contemporanei Urbani, an art gallery occupies the former monastery, featuring the works of young artists of Italy. Last year, the tower of San Niccolo opened to the public and offers a panoramic view of the city. While in September 2011, Gucci Museum debuted at the Palazzo della Mercanzia.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
