Description

Florence's communal council created a commission to study and photograph the heart of the old medieval city before it was to be destroyed at the end of the nineteenth century for urban planning and health reasons. These 329 largely unpublished photographs present a rare testimony of the deserted medieval city, almost like a modern Pompeii. Maria Sframeli's simple and accurate comments allow the pictures to speak for themselves as they document one of the worst losses to Italian cultural heritage in modern times. Italian text.show more
