The November 4 2016 official events are now underway to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the flood that affected Florence and Tuscany.

Mud angels have reunited at the Palazzo Vecchio, all those who risked their lives to save the Renaissance city in 1966. People, homes, animals, books and the city’s artistic and cultural heritage. What we can admire about Florence today is thanks to them.

Here are some photos of the Mud Angel Rally:
