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. In the poor quarter of Piazza Gavanina, a tenement block seven storeys high and about 150 yards long has become uninhabitable despite the danger of its collapse, residents are still allowed in to salvage whatever they can of their personal belongings. - Romano Cagnoni - 1966-11-14
