Mika, A Florence Taxi Driver

Mika (born in Beirut of an American father and a Lebanese mother) actually drove a cab for several days in Florence as part of his new series “Stasera Casa Mika” which will air on Rai 2 beginning on October 24.

“During filming, I made the acquaintance of Florentines and tourists by giving them a ride to their destinations,” says Mika. “At first glance city residents seem elegant and reserved, but when they open up, are friendly and giving.”

The pop star and new wave singer added, “I had a lot of fun on the job, and it was a great way to visit the city.”  To see a photo gallery, visit Florence’s La Repubblica news site.
