Item description for The Great Flood of Florence, 1966: A Photographic Essay (The Villa Rossa) by Swietlan Nicholas Kraczyna & Dorothea Barrett...

The Great Flood of Florence by Swietlan Nicholas Kraczyna launches a new book series published by Syracuse University in Florence. Villa Rossa Series: Intercultural Perspectives on Italy and Europe highlights the artistic achievements and intellectual discoveries of the SUF faculty and professional staff.

On November 4, 1966, Florence experienced the most devastating flood of its entire history, which crippled the city and destroyed many of the world's art treasures. On that day, Swietlan Nicholas Kraczyna, a twenty-six-year-old American artist living in Florence, went out into the flooded streets and photographed the dramatic unfolding events.

Kraczyna was awarded the Fiorino d'Oro--the highest honor of the City of Florence--for ten of those photographs. This book presents, for the first time, a selection of eighty-four of Kraczyna's flood photographs, taken on that tragic day and in the days that followed, as the city tried to deal with the immense disaster.
