Project Description

Florence: Piazza della Signoria and the Cathedral

The history of Florence draws its roots in a very distant past, full of undisputed protagonists of the Italian artistic life.
Spend a day in the heart of Florence, where artists such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Dante Alighieri have found inspiration for the creation of their masterpieces which still enlighten every corner of the city. As the famous director Franco Zeffirelli once said: “When I feel gripped by depression, I go back to Florence to look at Brunelleschi’s dome: if man’s genius has gone so far, then I too can and must try to create, act, live.”
