Description

Especially since the 1830s, many English and American people have moved to Florence. Some of them wanted to study Italian art and literature in order to draw inspiration for their work; others were attracted by the mild climate of the city that was believed to be suitable for treating lung disease; others were fascinated by the beauty of the surrounding hills and by the moderate cost of living. The book pays tribute to this community and analyzes some of the figures that have had a significant impact on the history of Florence between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It focuses in particular on the places they lived in or frequented, thus linking their names to streets, buildings and houses of the city. An international theme so far little studied, and even more poignant on the occasion of the 150 th anniversary of Florence as a capital city.
