FLORENCE IN SEPIA

INDEX PAGE


 
 
A
CD was created for the third City and Book international conference held in Florence, 3-5 June 2004, with the Gabinetto Vieusseux in the Palazzo Strozzi and in the English Cemetery, Piazzale Donatello. Recalling that the American sculptor Hiram Powers' son, Longworth Powers, was a Florentine photographer, and because I have fallen heir to a portfolio crammed full of Florentine and other sepia photographs from the nineteenth century, I have chosen to digitize these and to exhibit them at the time of the City and the Book III on the English Cemetery. This CD and website first discusses Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Casa Guidi, and the Piazzale Donatello, cataloguing the Swiss-owned 'English' Cemetery's international and ecumenical tombs Then it discusses Mother Agnes Mason, C.H.F., of the Oxford Movement Anglican Community of the Holy Family, whose collection of sepia photographs it catalogues. The essays and e-books are illustrated and keyed to the map of Florence.
