A Tragic Writer in Florence: Part Four

Both my tragic getaway and the first semester at The Florence Academy of Art were coming to a close. England, snow and Christmas beckoned. So, in a festive farewell mission, friends gathered at Livi’s for a final supper.

This was not the standard turkey, sprouts and roast potatoes. No, our meal was a collision of countries – Venezuelan rice, Tuscan sausage, Sicilian salad, American fried chicken (and American cooked ricotta gnocchi) & English Apple crumble – a marvelous multi-cultural feast.

The following day (my last), Livi and some of her housemates took me sight-seeing. Though I’d done a bit of exploring, being shown the city by locals made all the difference. On the menu was the Uffizi Gallery, the Palazzo Vecchio and the Boboli gardens.

  1. Hi Danelle,

    It really was delicious! I too am yearning to return to Florence, it is just so beautiful. I borrowed the hat from a friend and now think that I should invest in one!

    Happy New Year!

    Alice
