‘Last night the stars were polished diamonds accentuated by the lack of usual glow from the city. For three nights, Florence has been in stygian darkness. The twinkling diadem of Fiesole seems almost rude, taunting her over-grown daughter, sprawling wounded below. The City of Flowers is wounded worse than ever before. The flood has dwarfed the destruction of World War II.’
Horace Gibson (Nov. 7, 1966)
