in the year 1999 I´d spent some time in Florence when I was waiting for a connection train. Opposite the train station was a McDonald´s restaurant which created an obvious stylistic inconsistency to the renaissance palace. I personally think that this is a clear sign that the Florentines are not stuck in de epoch of renaissance but modern citizen with their needs. Behind the grey and dusty wall opposite the train station I saw the front of the church Santa Maria Novella, which is eponymous for the Piazza Santa Maria Novella. I´ve been at the piazza many times before, because many turn-by-turn directions start at this place.
