About the Book

A journey through the glorious Italian city's scenery, history, and culture, from the New York Times best-selling author of Venice Observed and The Group.

Renowned for her sharp literary style, essayist and fiction writer Mary McCarthy offers a unique history of Florence, from its inception to the dominant role it came to play in the world of art, architecture, and Italian culture, that captures the brilliant Florentine spirit and revisits the legendary figures--Dante, Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and others--who exemplify it so iconically. Her most cherished sights and experiences color this timeless, graceful portrait of a city that's as famous as it is alluring.
