Blog – Where in the World? The answer
Yesterday’s Where in the World? came from a rain-soaked Florence. Naked Eye Travel had the misfortune to visit the Italian city on a day when the wet stuff ruled the usually sunny city. But it gave us the chance to learn about a time when the rain allowed ‘mud angels’ the chance to show Florence’s bright side. A spectacular flood in 1966 left 30 people dead and thousands homeless – but the people of Florence were indebted to an army of students from all over the world, the ‘mud angels’, who came to help during the re-building process. It is a remarkable story.
