After finding my roots in the tiny fishing village of Lacco Ameno, Ischia, I became a dual citizen and was beckoned to live in the country that my family had to abandon in 1904. They would never live to know that their dream would be fulfilled through their children. They would never live to know that a century and three generations later, the circle would be completed, returning one of their children back, to love as they never could, the land that was once theirs.
Piazza della Signoria was jam-packed tonight with proud fans of Florence's soccer team, La Fiorentina, who created a thunder that rocked all of Florence.
Here, the Comune di Firenze staged an extraordinary light show projected onto the walls of Palazzo Vecchio, celebrating the team's new technical sponsor. .
What made this event so spectacular, was the ingenuious lighting technique that was used to project dynamic images of the new team jerseys onto an image of Michelangelo’s David, creating the illusion that David himself was wearing the new jersey! Thus the theme, “Vestiamo il David”. A spellbinding and emotional evening!
