The book, published on occasion of theXIV Conferenza Internazionale sulla Relatività e la Gravitazione Universale (International Conference on Relativity and Universal Gravitation), doesn’t want to be a complete guide of Florence, but its purpose is to give a particular vision of four among its famous monuments: Palazzo Vecchio, S. Croce, S. Maria Novella e il Museo di S. Marco.
