After moving from Alabama to Italy, I quickly became aware of the missing pieces in the mental picture I begun to build of my new home. As I became increasingly familiar with the city, I started to realize there was an essential part of its identity that I couldn’t comprehend without being able to speak the language. Filling in the blank spaces in my comprehension of Italian language and culture is a slow and daunting process, but by documenting the experience, I am giving shape to both the closeness I feel to Florence and the barriers I have yet to overcome.
