When I first came to Florence, I never imagined falling in love with it the way that I have. I saw it through the eyes of any tourist: as a spectacle, a place to enjoy but never to call home. I observed its untouchable perfection—its beauty, history, delicious food and melodic language—without imagining the impact it would have on me. Once I breached this perfection, diving into the culture of the city itself, there was no going back. I became infatuated with Florence.
