Long Live Good News!,

There's no denying that these are tough times. Banking crises, financial collapse, skyrocketing prices, rising violence and bad milk have us feeling down. Picking up a newspaper these days is not for the faint of heart-if you're not careful you can spin yourself straight into a global panic.


Yet good news does exist. It's out there just waiting to be found. So The Florentine has decided to offer our readers as much buone notizie - good news - as possible. Don't think of this as an effort to bury our heads in the sand or ignore what is happening in our city; think of it as a promise to find the good news and bring it directly to our readers.


In this issue you'll find a wealth of positive news: art restorations, new university openings, assistance for those going green, health benefits from sipping Chianti, a decline in street crime, a festival celebrating creativity, and much, much more.


There. Now that we proved it could be done, what we really want to know is: What's your good news?
