how much of this matters in Florence, you ask?
none of it, really, except that I don't mean to be rude.
today I interviewed the proprietors of Italy's largest independent bookstore (English speaking) for an upcoming Publishing Perspectives story. I talked for an hour to a craftsman. and then I slipped inside a cloister for young friars and learned from a master, a story I will tell at another time. I will tell you, too, someday, of a magical green-eyed woman named Laura.
but all of that is for someday, when I can properly honor these true Florentines.
