Robert Clark's Dark Water: Flood and Redemption in the City of Masterpieces PDF

This dramatic, fantastically written account of the flood that ravaged Florence, Italy, in 1966 weaves heartbreaking stories of the catastrophe and tales of the heroic worldwide efforts to avoid wasting the city’s treasures opposed to the old heritage of Florence’s wonderful art.

On November four, 1966, Florence, one of many world’s so much historical towns and the repository of might be its maximum paintings, used to be struck by way of a huge calamity. A low-pressure procedure have been stalled over Italy for 6 weeks and at the past day it had began to rain back. Nineteen inches fell in twenty-four hours, greater than half the yearly overall. via o’clock within the morning twenty-thousand cubic toes of water according to moment was once relocating towards Florence. quickly manhole covers in Santa Croce have been exploding into the air as jets of water started capturing out of the now beaten sewer procedure. Cellars, vaults, and strong-rooms have been filling with water. evening watchmen at the Ponte Vecchio alerted the bridge’s jewelers and goldsmiths to return quick to rescue their wares. via then the water was once relocating at 40 miles consistent with hour at a peak of twenty-four ft. At 7:26 a. m. all of Florence’s electrical civic clocks got here to a cease.

Six-hundred-thousand hundreds it is going to smother, clot, and encrust the town.  
Dark Water brings the flood and its aftermath to lifestyles throughout the voices of witnesses previous and current. younger American artists wade heedlessly during the inundated urban wearing their child as a way to witness its devastated good looks: the Ponte Vecchio buried in particles and Ghiberti’s panels from the doorways of the Florence Baptistery, mendacity heaped in yard-deep dust; the swamped Uffizi Gallery; and, within the urban libraries, a billion pages of Renaissance and old books, soaked in mire. A Life magazine photographer, stowing away on a military helicopter, arrives to trap a drama that, he felt, “could in simple terms learn through Dante” amid the flooded tombs of Machiavelli and Michelangelo in Giotto and Vasari’s Santa Croce. A British pupil, certainly one of millions of “mud angels” who rushed to Florence to store its artwork, spends a month scraping dust and mould from Cimabue’s incredible and neglected Crocifisso as intrigues and infighting between overseas paintings specialists and connoisseurs swirl round him. and through the 40th anniversary commemorations of 2006 the writer asks himself why artwork concerns so a great deal to us, and the way good looks turns out to in some way shop the realm even within the face of overwhelming disaster.
