This book reveals Florence’s ancient heart through the special testimony of the goldsmith Marco Rustici (1392?-1457), the author of an extraordinary Codex that celebrates this town around the year 1450. His watercolor drawings are analyzed against the great churches that are still found in Florence today, as well as the sites and the ruins of those that have disappeared. The result is an astonishing sequence of similarities and differences outlining Florence’s most intimate identity as a town with a keen memory of its past, that is able to change while remaining true to itself.
