What it is
It is a project wanted by the new director Massimiliano Giornetti that sees the involvement of 30 young students from all over the world and that has led to the creation of 150 black and white shots accompanied by words, slogans and feelings of the students. A real collection that tells the city as it is, without filters, exactly as the twenty-year-olds of today live it. All this because Florence enters people's hearts, becoming part of the formative growth of young students.
There are many locations that are the protagonists of the shots, including: Piazza del Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, Loggiato degli Uffizi, Piazza della Signoria, Piazza della Repubblica, Santa Maria Novella... Florence is a wonderful background wherever you turn!
A dialogue between the city and digital culture
Starting from the map of the city, visitors can virtually move through the different locations in Florence, letting themselves be carried away by the images and (in parallel) getting to know the students through their portraits and stories. In fact, the online platform includes the self-discovery stories of each of them revealing how, for those coming from outside, the grand Renaissance city appears.
We cite a couple of them.
"The city drew me in, the vibrant atmosphere made me stay. The pristine beauty, art and culture resonate with me like no other city ever could. A city that makes you wish time would slow down to savor every precious moment it has to offer you before another day begins. It becomes your safe haven. Your place to grow, learn and travel in self-discovery" says Janie from South Africa.
"If you had asked me as a child to dream about where I wanted to study and who I was supposed to become, I couldn't have gotten a better idea of the life I have today" Polina from Russia.
