The Pavement as an Artist’s Canvas
Italy is worth visiting for a variety of reasons—the cuisine, the people, the numerous artistic masterpieces, intricate architecture, its fascinating history or, simply, its visual appeal.
Whatever the choice, Italy stands as a country of compelling visual impact.
It’s a photographer’s paradise.
Florence, the capital city of the Tuscany region, which lies on the River Arno, is known as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and is known for its art museums, elegant squares, academies, along with its parks and gardens.
Art and artists are everywhere in Florence—even in the street where artists use the pavement as a canvas.
This is a city of visual impact, surrounded by basilicas, churches cathedrals, libraries, chapels and bridges, along with markets and sidewalk cafes featuring stunning Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
And the city’s influence carries over to music, education, fashion, science and religion.
The city is simply a visual delight.
Art is never finished, only abandoned –Leonardo da Vinci
