Start with a smile

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.
