Florence in Dance

For our street dance photographs of today the destination chosen is Florence, a city that certainly needs no introduction, is famous all over the world for its extraordinary beauty.
Capital of Tuscany region, it hosts many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture, unfortunately our photo session as always will last only a little over half a day and will not allow us to visit the many museums, but surely we will have time to dance around some points of interest.

Once again, arriving from Milan, I chose the train; in about an hour and a half, we arrive at the Santa Maria Novella station, practically a stone’s throw from the center. For this photo session they collaborated with me and I thank them heartily, the very good dancers Francesca Cuciniello, Laura Giacomini and little Vittoria Lazzeri (in alphabetical order).
The Duomo of Florence is one of the most extraordinary places in the world, a beautiful cathedral with the tiled dome designed by Brunelleschi and the Giotto’s bell tower. The cathedral is really huge and impossible to insert in full in a photograph together with a dance portrait, so we have chosen to leave only a few clips visible so that it is still recognizable, but at the same time it allows us to remain in our main theme, the dance.

We then moved to the beautiful Piazza della Signoria, where a few steps away reside the Academy Gallery which exhibits the sculpture of Michelangelo’s David and the Uffizi Gallery where are located Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and The Annunciation by Leonardo da Vinci.

We crossed and photographed the Ponte Vecchio on the Arno, full of charm and always very crowded, to finally arrive at Palazzo Pitti, one of the largest museums in Italy and one of the favorite stops by visitors to the city and also by us because the square at the entrance is really suggestive, ideal for our photographs.

Florence is a wonderful city, we will be back soon because there are many places that we still have to visit and above all photograph.
