The ancient and the modern

Florence has benefitted from extensive measures of preservation. Architecture built hundreds of years ago remains sturdy and resistant, and has found a new life in the modern world. Telephone wires, gutters, satellite dishes, and more are indicators of modernity on a medieval structure. Contemporary Florence, therefore, is about the marriage of the antiquity and the modern.
