9/43.- Florence, Piazza della Signoria, Sabinas’ abduction

A travel to Florence is not only a travel in space, but also a travel in time. When you get to this city, it is like you had been teleported to the medieval age.

This wonderful city is located in the Arno River Valley. We find Etruscan and Roman ruins in Florence, but what characterizes this city is the Renaissance period. During the 13th and 14th century Florence extended its domination to Arezzo, Pistoia and Siena. Famous artists of this period are Dante (the author of the "Divina Comedia", one of the fathers of the Italian language), Giotto (1266-1337, the author of the Cathedral’s tower and the frescoes of Santa Croce), Petrarca and Bocaccio.
