Pandemic locked Florence was a beauty queen in the hands of the very few registered residents living within the medieval quadrilateral of Duomo, Signoria, Santa Croce and Pitti. Silenced the ambulances, the mopeds, the cars. all food, beverage or entertainment locked-up, tourists off-limit: only dog walkers and domestic trash activities were allowed within 200 sqm of residential proof of identity. To keep employees, the city maintained the same number of shifts for streets' cleaning… the old lastricates became shiny as silver mirrors for clean and free monuments otherwise covered in camera and phone shutters holding crowds. Statues were fully exposed: not just a glimpse. David himself held a red scarf to support the Covid-free campaign.Santa Croce was the first city square where kids went back to play soccer live, after hours of insane and boring distant learning efforts.
