Florence Fights To Save Precious Books

Gary D. Price, MLIS, and ResourceShelf Guy spotted Florence Fights To Save Precious Books.

They look at a small group of restorers working through a mountain of 35,500 precious books dating back to the 17th century, wrecked by a flood way back in 1966.

The National Library and the Uffizi Gallery – treasure houses of priceless works of art, including Botticelli’s “La Primavera” – were hit hardest by the flood as they sit on the banks of the river.
