Our Piazza

I can never explain the experience of living as an artist in Florence... but here is some of what I see.

This is the Piazza we walk through every day on our way home. Piazza Santissima Annunziata.
This is our Piazza in a print by Giuseppe Zocchi (1711-67). During the Renaissance Florentines left abandoned children on the steps to the right, of The Ospital degli Innocenti, designed by Brunelleschi around 1420
Now this man sits on the steps everyday. So do artists, drawing. And tourists and travelers. Gypsies and museum goers. Something different is always happening.
So much in one place.
