I am all packed up! Been saying
good-bye to Florence all day!
“The Duomo” Photographed lovingly at dawn.
Tomorrow I begin the Pisa portion of this potential adventure! I spent 5 hours in the Uffizi today! It was a magical time.
This is a mythical character painting entitled, “Fortune.” Oil on wooden panel cir. 1504 by Giovanni de Lorenzo Larciani. “Depicted is Fortune being lead across the sea by a dolphin, a symbol of rapidity and instability, while clutching a sail unfurling in the wind, an allusion to the voluble and uncertain nature of her path.” Ain’t she wild? Just one of the hundreds of treasures I discovered at this world class museum.
Sending everyone love from across the pond…
Lani (de Lorenzo) Chaves
PS – Today would have been my 16th wedding anniversary. Was a lovely way to celebrate!
