Homage to Florence is a photographic book by Massimo Borchi and Guido Cozzi.
From the preface by Valerio Aoilli:
"[...] they possess acuteness and passion, and in their work they are capable of combining respect for forms and compositional freedom. It was not easy to find new angles in a city that has been under everyone's eyes for centuries. Their photographs - in dialogue with remnants of Dante, Leopardi, Frank Llyod Wright, Ruskin, Tabucchi and many others - form a mottled and powerful picture, which makes this book a homage to Florence anti-rhetorical and full of beauty. Allowing me too, for once, to look at her wide-eyed as if I didn't know her."
