Complex and controversial figure that of Savonarola, a man who had the courage to address burning issues in the political and moral life of the time
Gerolamo Savonarola a light in the darkness
Savonarola was a complex and controversial figure, a man who had the courage to address burning issues in the political and moral life of the time, never accepting compromise or censure.
In this traveling guided tour we will trace Savonarola’s life’s work in Florence, from his first preaching in San Lorenzo, to his ascension to the priory of San Marco, to the height of his political period at the head of the city when his prophetic homilies in the Cathedral and Palazzo Vecchio made him an uncomfortable figure for the ecclesiastical hierarchies.
We will recall how his unjust death sentence deeply marked the hearts of Florentines who, even today, want to remember this event during the ceremony of the Fiorita on the Ponte Vecchio. Our visit will be a rediscovery of places that saw the presence of this passionate “unarmed prophet,” a true source of illumination amid the darkness of corruption and oblivion.
