Firenze Sunset

Firenze Sunset
8 x 20 Oil Painting
by Pat Fiorello
I caught a beautiful sunset over the Arno river one evening while in Florence and finally decided to paint it.  Florence( also known as Firenze) is usually one of the places where I spend a few days before my painting workshops in Tuscany. There is so much history and art in this amazing city.

 I recently learned that Florence was originally named Fiorentia by Caesar. The word means "flourishing".  Little did he know that centuries later,  the city would be flourishing as a major art center contributing to the Renaissance.
