Expats in Florence

In the Expats in Florence column that I created for The Florentine, I interviewed expats living in Florence and wrote about how they arrived in Florence and how they were transformed by it.

“Florence is home to many expats: those who have longed to live here, those who have found love and moved here, and those who have come to Florence and felt immediately at home. Many people arrive in the city at a point in their lives when they feel a desire to redefine themselves: whether they were not completely happy, were searching for something new, or were looking for love. Those who come to Florence are reborn. Florence has always been the 'cradle of the Renaissance' for the art world, but it also transforms those who are seeking to follow their hearts.”
