Florence: center of renaissance and much more

“The past isn’t dead. It isn’t even past”, said William Faulkner. Of course, when he wrote these words he wasn’t thinking about Florence, but he could have. Each Florentine feels to be part of a well entrenched idea of civilisation and taste, they are aware that they still belong to a golden era. But there is also another world in Florence, not only Brunelleschi and Dante, the Renaissance and the Medici family, the perfection of Michelangelo’s David and the beauty of Botticelli’s “Primavera”. There is another idea of the city which lies in silence, not always in the city-centre. Florence can’t only be considered the treasure of the past, surely wonderful and precious, but still part of the past. Florence is also a modern city where tradition is preserved and is innovated at the same time.
