A New York Times Notable Book

In this deeply personal and learned labor of love, R.W.B. Lewis provides a new look at the glories of Florence, the smallish Tuscan city which has been a prime source for modern Western culture and which has also been his second home for fifty years. With a scholar's eye and a lover's passion, he invites us to share his vision of a city and the way of life it has engendered and inspired.


Praise for The City of Florence

“This is wonderful history-detailed, fluid, and carried along by emotion. I cannot imagine visiting Florence without reading this book.” —Karen Stabiner, Los Angeles Times
