Bel Vedere Firenze In Florence Italy-乃々果花

Travel-and-Leisure The city attracts every year visitors .ing from all over the world, not only because of its artistic heritage, but also thanks to its wonderful landscapes. Florence, indeed, lies in an enchanting location, surrounded by hills and crossed by the river Arno. Florences treasures are widespread all over the city, but the historical centre is characterised by such a great number of culturally interesting sights to be considered unique in the world. The city historical centre includes, just to make some examples, the cathedral Santa Maria del Fiore, Palazzo Vecchio, Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, Palazzo Pitti, the basilica Santa Maria Novella, the basilica Santa Croce and the Uffizi museum, and for its artistic value it has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The reasons why UNESCO took such a decision are various: for example, its monuments and building have had and influence on architecture both in Italy and all over the world; furthermore, the historical centre keeps streets, buildings and even a 14th century bridge intact, and for this reason it is important also from an historical point of view. To celebrate the 26th anniversary of the recognition granted by UNESCO, Florence hosts an exhibition which is focused on the views that people can and could enjoy in the past of the city from the historical centre, and in this way the exhibition celebrates the citys landscape and its transformation in time. The exhibition Bel_Vedere_Firenze, which will be held from the 21st December to the 15th February in the city historical archives, will be a chance for visitors to discover the results of the study Transforming Florence historical centre. A critical survey for the redevelopment of the urban landscape, conducted by the Department of Architecture Planning of Florence University. The exhibition includes, on the one hand, pictures and surveys made from particular points between Piazzale Michelangelo and Giardino di Boboli, on the other hand a series of XIX centurys paintings and images that help us understand how Florence looked like at the time. Both the study and the exhibition are particularly interesting because Florence is a city which is undergoing an unavoidable urban and extra urban development, but which, at the same time, needs to protect its artistic heritage. And these issues will be dealt with during a debate which will take place the day before the inauguration of the exhibition, and which will focus on important themes like the transformation of the urban landscape and the necessity to find a balance between economic goals and the protection of resources and environment. If you are planning a trip to discover Italys artistic beauties, book now a cheap hotel in Florence and enjoy your holiday in Tuscany.
