Projects

The first of its kind, Magenta Publisher’s project Florence Through the Eyes and Lives of Foreigners (Firenze Vista e Vissuta dagli Stranieri), evolved into Amerigo & America. Both have the aim of documenting the impact of foreign residents in the area, both present and past.

Amerigo & America was created to commemorate Florentine explorer Amerigo Vespucci (1451-1512).  Thanks to his discoveries, Vespucci’s name was given to North and South America.

Part of the project is the book America & Amerigo, which, in addition to following Vespucci in his native city, focuses on the reverse migration to Florence of contemporary Americans who have significantly contributed to the culture of the their adopted city.

The Amerigo & America program also comprised an exhibition by established American realism artists, as well another by U.S. students and native Italians; concerts of American music; and open days at American university campuses in Florence.
