A RING OF GOLD

ANTHOLOGY OF HYPERTEXTED GUIDES TO FLORENCE

When Elizabeth Barrett Browning died at Florence in 1861, the Comune, her city government, and also at that time, capital of Italy, placed a plaque above the doorway of Casa Guidi, stating that she had made f her poetry a golden ring beyween Italy and England. The Comune also offered to raise and educate her son, Pen, as a Citizen of Italy. Her husband, Robert Browning, instead took twelve-year-old Pen immediately to England, and never returned to Florence. Pen, however, did return and would later have another plaque placed on Casa Guidi celebrating from his mother's poem the little child singing below Casa Guidi Windows, "Oh Bella Libertà, O Bella!". This anthology of hypertext web guides seeks to deepen the experiences in time and space for travellers to this city of Florence, whether in flesh and blood or virtually. Shakespeare spoke of Sermons in Stones. Florence's poets and artists created of her a new Jerusalem, a Vita nova, for you.

Matthew 6.19. Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Dante Alighieri, Giotto, Fra Angelico, Girolamo Savonarola, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Giorgio La Pira all saw Florence as potentially a new Jerusalem
. It's not money, but knowledge, it's the Seven Acts of Mercy, that made her beautiful.
