Felice 2008


The photo above was taken a few days ago. The city is projecting the greeting “Auguri di Buon Natale e Felice 2008” on the Ponte Vecchio. You can see the Vasari Corridor making a 90 degree turn as it comes from the Uffizi and heads over the Ponte Vecchio. The corridor is the very top part with the regularly spaced windows. By the way, there are over 1500 self portraits in the Uffizi collection. Over 400 of them are on display in the corridor. The group Friends of Florence is looking for a sponsor to pay for photographing them all, producing a book, and sponsoring a US tour. Any takers?

Happy New Year to all of our readers (all 3 of you) and everyone who made our trip possible.
