COLIN FIRTH, OUR COVER STORY
In this special winter issue, we dedicate the cover to the great British actor and Oscar winner Colin Firth, fresh from two film experiences linked to Florence, to the director Giorgio Testi (spearhead of the digital avant-garde in the film universe) and the production company Pulse Films Italia. We are talking about the short film Chiusi Fuori shot at the Teatro della Pergola, alongside Stefano Accorsi, and the film The Renaissance Awards, which brought together artists, digital technologies and young activists committed to sustainability at Palazzo Vecchio, sending a strong message from Florence to the world. Firth tells us about his love and special bond with Florence but also talks about the future of cinema and the increasingly urgent need to recognise that young activists are the driving force behind empowerment.
THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ROOF TERRACE IN FLORENCE IN WINTER
Would you like to enjoy the most evocative views of Florence from a terrace with a view but sheltered from the cold winter months? We have selected for you the coolest and most publicly accessible addresses from which you can daydream, looking out over the city's rooftops even at this time of year without chattering your teeth: covered or heated terraces of restaurants, lounge bars and cafés, but also museum halls with incredible views that only a few people know about... Take note and set off to discover them.
THE HISTORY OF THE GONDI FAMILY AS TOLD BY THEIR LAST DESCENDANTS
The latest generation of one of the oldest Florentine families, Lapo and Gerardo Gondi, tell us the fascinating story of how the family palace - built next to Palazzo Vecchio by none other than Giuliano da Sangallo (it was thanks to this project that Sangallo, brought to Florence from Naples by Giuliano Gondi, became Lorenzo the Magnificent's favourite architect) - takes us to the apse of Notre Dame in Paris, which is none other than the Gondi Chapel, and to the Palace of Versailles.
TOURING FLORENCE WITH US CONSUL GENERAL IN FLORENCE RAGINI GUPTA
