Feeling like it stopped along the way, instead of a final landing spot, hit our ancestors’ pride. And he certainly did not go so far as to say that Florence is better than Rome. They didn’t go that far, at least explicitly. But deep down, they suffered from this implied second attitude. Indeed, when the Grand Duchy had not yet died, it had merged into the Kingdom of Sardinia, many Ricasoli, Ridolfi, Buvalini, Poggi and their followers saw fit to found the Institute of Postgraduate Studies as an avant-garde institute, on the side of clinical trials and scientific and human research. They made Florence the capital of culture. The change of time and history does not stop. But the post-Covid redevelopment of Florence (when, hopefully soon, this ordeal will finally come to an end) always goes through these paths. And Florentine culture has potential. Florence, among many, is the birthplace of two originals. The first is the fabric of the academies. The survival of the ancient lineage academies in our city is evidence of the vitality of a free and independent culture. They are academies that have been modernized and adapted to changing times and are still in a position to develop a leading cultural offering: from Gorgoville to Colombia, to name a few. They should be placed online, while maintaining their independence. The second is that there is a museum of the history of science unknown and outside it because it is divided into six poles. It needs to be rebuilt as a unified hub. In the meantime, let’s start from here.
