Florence Floods, Italy, 1966

Florence Floods, Italy, 1966 in which 100 died and many cultural artefacts, books, paintings and sculptures were damaged. It was the worst flood for five hundred years. Suits and armour taken from the Bargello Museum to the courtyard of the Uffizi Gallery. Student volunteers dry and oil each piece thoroughly to prevent the rust which can grow very quickly on the armour. - Romano Cagnoni - 1966-11-11
