The Comitato Firenze2016 has produced, for the 50th anniversary of the flood, a CD with three original songs by the singer-songwriter Alessandro Barbieri: Firenze 50 years ago, Arno, Mud Angels.

In the lyrics for the song “Mud Angels” a verse says:

And from the television, in black and white, I see Florence that seems to drown
And the Arno is a tide of dark mud that upsets everything and violates the city
And I couldn’t just watch, leaving and doing something was almost a necessity
Mud Angels
I left my world
for Florence, I ran there

Listen to Angeli del Fango (Mud Angels)



The CD is available now and costs 5 euro. All monies go towards Comitato Firenze2016 project. Available from:
