LIVE from FIRENZE
It is universally known as the cradle of art and architecture and its historical centre has been part of the Unesco World Heritage since 1982. The Brunelleschi’s Dome, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio and Palazzo Pitti are just a tiny part of the extraordinary heritage of this city, whose historical centre still maintains part of its medieval structure and the characteristics of the Renaissance. The urban planning by Giuseppe Poggi, dated to the end of the 19th century and implemented to widen the city, led to the destruction of the city walls to create a wide ring road, which also made space for the most famous view of the city: Piazzale Michelangelo. In the last few years, it has been hard to favour the contemporary and European aspects of the city: its past is glorious, but it seems to leave no space for the future. Regardless of this negative side, Florence is still one of the most beautiful cities in the world, to be discovered with a notebook to draw and catch every monument, shelf and arch of the unlimited architectural heritage the city can offer.
