‘Fiorentini’ are the most jealous people of the world

Florence by night is stunning!

It’s said that is part of the experience of anyone from Florence, when travelling abroad for work, study or pleasure, when asked in a dialogue his origins of having to hear back ”Florence! Renaissance! That’s a beauty! ”.

And it’s part of any ‘fiorentino’ to feel that mix of pleasure and nuisance from the compliments received. Being almost irritated from having to listen, once again the same thing again.

‘Fiorentini’ are passionate people, caring very much for their city, so much of almost being jealous of it. Hard to accept of having to share with the entire world its beauty. Like a jealous boyfriend would do, when feel the charm of the loved one can seduce others too.

And this is the destiny of the city and its inhabitants that received in 1982 the inclusion in the World Heritage List of UNESCO. Third site for Italy, back by then.

Florence by day. Arno river.

Florence, the outstanding beauty

Built on the site of an Etruscan settlement, Florence, the symbol of the Renaissance, rose to economic and cultural pre-eminence under the Medici in the 15th and 16th centuries. Its 600 years of extraordinary artistic activity can be seen above all in the 13th-century cathedral (Santa Maria del Fiore), the Church of Santa Croce, the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace, the work of great masters such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo.

The reference to ” it’s said so” is mentioned in various sites that ”fiorentini have this characteristic.
