Photographer's Note

Visiting Florence is a special experience like going back in a time machine in a way. This building was where they used to make some of the phamaceuticals, like an early chemist shop. The place was well rennovated and maintained. There must be thousands of similar places around medieval cities, but Florence has a charm of its own.

A city of central Italy on the Arno River east of Pisa. Originally an Etruscan settlement, then a Roman town, Florence was a powerful city-state under the Medici family during the Italian Renaissance, with a brilliant artistic flowering led by Giotto, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dante, and Raphael. Florence was the capital of newly unified Italy from 1865 to 1871, when the government was moved to Rome. Population: >366,000.
