It’s been less than one year since I moved to Florence and I’m slowly learning to love it. Coming from a big, chaotic city like Rome, it wasn’t easy for me in the beginning to adapt to the slower and calm pace of Florence.
When I’m walking or biking around Florence, no matter if I’m in a rush or focused on getting to a specific location, I try to keep my eyes and heart open as much as possible.
One of the reasons why I take photos of Florence, it’s not just to capture her beauty and elegance and share it, but also to embrace and to appreciate it everyday…
I always let her take me by the hand and lead me where she thinks I should go. When she nudges me in a different direction, I am never disappointed. I always discover something I hadn’t seen before, I always see her in a different way.
Florence is so small that if you dedicate time enough to her you can discover everything.
I think that the real beautiful thing is that everything is never the same here.
Sometimes it’s just the light that illuminates everything in a different way, sometimes it’s your mood that allows you to see so many little details that you missed before. Sometimes it’s the season, with its colors and scents. Or it’s just a kind of magic…
