On Wednesday, 29 June 2011, the 150th anniversary of the great Risorgimental poet, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the Comune of Florence, in the presence of the City's lilied banner, and the blowing of trumpets, laid a laurel wreath on her tomb. Florence grants the same honours to her poet, Dante Alighieri. You are invited to the event virtually at http://piazzaledonatello.blogspot.com.

he culture of Florence was based on skilled handwork, on alphabetical learning and on numerical banking. Its coin (the 'Florin' of our Website's URL), became the currency of Europe, the medieval Euro, using on one side the lily of the Virgin at the Annunciation, on the other, John the Baptist; Mary and John from the Gospel's pages becoming Florence's patrons. For the Bible from Asia, as 'a stranger in a strange land', had already become currency throughout Europe, and from it were to be spawned countless other books, such as Dante Alighieri's Commedia, John Milton's Paradise Lost, Madame de Staël's Corinne ou l'Italie, Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Aurora Leigh, Robert Browning's The Ring and the Book, George Eliot's Romola, Nathaniel Hawthorne's Marble Faun, Fyodor Dosteivsky's The Idiot, each of these with Florentine associations. At first books were written out by hand, in manuscript (the 'ms' of our Website's URL), often gold-leafed as well as rainbow-coloured, and were read aloud and chanted from. Then they became black and white printed books, read silently in intellectual loneliness. Now they can be the sensuous luminous and harmonious pages, with colour again, and with song, with voice, through the new/old technologies of alphabet and number, the zeros and ones, of our computers, of our information society.

V. THE 'THUNDERS OF WHITE SILENCE WEBSITE', ON FLORENCE'S ENGLISH CEMETERY




his website next became the publisher of the catalogue of tombs in the Swiss-owned so-called 'English' Cemetery in Florence, resulting in information coming from descendants and scholars from as far away as Africa and Australia.

Call up music file, then reduce to icon, and recall this file to have them be simultaneous. Rachmaninoff uses the sound of the oars of  Charon's boat on the waters for his symphonic poem, the 'Isle of the Dead', Opus 29

This catalogue is linked to files, of use to scholars, genealogists and relatives, giving the complete registry of the tombs in the so-called English Cemetery in Florence and the Cimitero agli Allori, just outside Florence, opened in 1877 when the 'English Cemetery' was closed for burials:

XII. FLORIN, A NON-PROFIT GUIDE TO CULTURE AND COMMERCE IN FLORENCE

  Click on coin


We invite Florentine artigiani (craftspeople) and publishing houses to tell us of their products and their addresses for inclusion in Florin.
This Florin Website is presented to enhance the knowledge and appreciation of Florence's work ethic, which stretches back to the Desert Fathers and their making of baskets and books (baskets to earn their bread, books to continue conversing across time and space about contemplation), which was continued in Benedictine monasteries, and in lay cities, like Assisi, like Florence, but which now with the raising of rents, high taxation, outsourcing and globalization is shudderingly halted. Florence's University came into being after Dante's day. Yet, in the century preceding him, before ever the Medici were heard of, literacy had been extraordinarily high, fathers and mothers teaching sons and daughters their letters as they worked together in family botteghe or workshops. This Florin website welcomes you to Florence, and makes suggestions about museums, libraries and shops to visit. Italy has half the world's art treasures, Florence has half Italy's art treasures.  



         WHERE TO STAY IN FLORENCE:

Residence Michelangiolo: My computer gurus have now changed their ancestral Liberty style villa into a stunning residence, complete with internet connections: http://www.residencemichelangiolo.it/(click on 'English Version' to enter their website from this initial page);

Villa Agape: We house our conference guests in a most beautiful Renaissance garden-surrounded villa beloved by Galileo and run by nuns, called Villa Agape on Via Torre del Gallo 8/10 who have no website;

Hotel Park Palace: Our Swiss owners of this 'English' Cemetery have the Hotel Park Palace with swimming pool and bookings with them can be made at http://www.parkpalace.com
