A Dedicated Street Artist
Florence, Italy. 11:35am September 29, 2010. Too many things to see but too little time we had in Florence, the cradle of Renaissance. Even street artists like this one are fascinating. I had no idea what he was acting. He must be some kind of storyteller, although the words on the postcard displayed beside him are “Richiedete il vostro canto preferito” (Request your favorite song). With only one listener, he got into his acting enthusiastically as if he had a large audience. The museum behind him is not Dante’s casa (home/house) but was built 100 years ago to commemorate the great poet.
