Florentine countergeographies

A tour in the city of Florence “built” by the inhabitants The body has its own reasons in different life seasons determining the way to inhabit and build new and old spaces of the city, beyond traditional uses and behaviours, sometimes recovering old functions, inventing new and unsuspected ones. Spaces and times of everyday life, bricolage in the use of the city, the silent and unconscious countergeography that becomes visible

Travel notes – Iacopo Zetti

I had the opportunity, for a series of reasons, to cross Florence in the morning and evening in the past days. I expected silence and in fact I listened to it. This silence is not that of the out of town. In the mountains it does not exist because the air plays and the same in the countryside because there is always a rustle or the sound of a plant.
