  • Aby Warburg; Arcadia; Firenze


The aim of this article is to analyse the multifaceted identity of the city of Florence at the beginning of the 20th Century, under the perspective of the German artists and intellectuals, who chose the “reachable Arcadia” of the Renaissance as their home. The Florentine diaries of Aby Warburg, who is the protagonist of Florenz 1900. Die Suche nach Arkadien, written by the Swiss historian Bernd Roeck (2001), guide us through the analysis.
