The first decade of the millennium is behind us-and
what a decade it was! Some say it was the decade of integration: think, for
example, of the vast network of virtual connections that now bind us to others,
our shared vocabulary and information. Others may contend that little has
changed, only the technologies through which we view our environs, and ‘it’s
all just a little bit of history repeating.’ One thing is certain: the world is
getting smaller, and it’s moving fast.

Florence, a world unto itself, is going global at an
ever-accelerating rate. The staff of The
Florentine has one wish: as you expand your horizons in the new decade, stay
connected with loved ones, new acquaintances and us! Read us, write to us, have
fun with us … and smile! There’s no better, more universal way to connect.
