As an Italian-American it is scary to realize how much we are not exposed or taught about the greatness of Italy's past. Yes, Michelangelo, Galileo, and Machiavelli are well known, but great men like Botticelli and Dante are never discussed and explored like they should.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
