  1. Ciao Stacy! Buon inizio dell’anno! Looking forward to your February posts. Such a Lovely video of our beloved Firenze you have posted! When I was in Florence last June I visited church of San Lorenzo where most of Medici are buried. There is a lovely statue of Anna Maria Luisa on the bottom level before climbing stairs to the Medici Chapels. I stopped and paid my respects! I’m reading an interesting book now about Isabella de’ Medici (daughter of Eleonora and Cosimo I) called Murder of a Medici Princess by Caroline Murphy. It is fascinating (also background research for my next project 🙂 ) Wouldn’t it be great to be in Florence together? You should come next September when we walk the steps of Sophia all over Florence 🙂 Will stay tuned to your next posts and will share on my site! Ci sentiamo

    • Ciao! Thank you for the sweet comment and for sharing my post! I have long been interested in writing something more extended about AML de’ Medici, but there are limited resources. I was fortunate enough to be in Florence when the Medici chapels had a whole display devoted to AML!

      • oops, wasn’t finished with my reply! You know how much I would LOVE to be in Florence with you (and Arezzo, Lucca….) but I need to save my travel resources for my “Semester Abroad”, which we are still hopeful is in our future. I will share your trip posts on FB. Un abbraccio!
