Firenze Sound Map is the tender sound map of the city of Firenze in Italy.
It was born in 2009 as an output of my doctoral studies in Sensuous Urbanism and Soundscape Studies and it has become a collective sound map through the spontaneous and generous participation of the Florentine population, city users and tourists.
In the midst of 2009, when the idea to launch the project came to my mind, I had the honor to be supported with the enthusiasm and expertise of my friend Emranno Lacommare, who – as a software developer – helped me to turn my dream into reality.
8 years have passed by since then! And many extraordinary things happened in the meanwhile. I had the pleasure to meet and collaborate with fantastic people, in national and international venues, travelling around with my bag packed with florentine sounds, personal memories and secret dreams. And I was always warmly welcomed.
Now, I feel it is time to give something back to you.
And, the refreshed new look plus some new content for Firenze Sound Map represents my way to thank you all very much for the support, friendship, interest and passion you have given to me through all of these unforgettable years.
You know me.
I love to exchange, so get in touch! And let me know what you think about it!
