The Mud Angels: Florence During the Flood

Now on display in the Norwood Reading Room, The Mud Angels: Florence During the Flood highlights materials from the inaugural FSU study abroad program to Florence, Italy in 1966. Drawing from the newly acquired FSU International Programs Collection, the exhibit commemorates the 50th anniversary of the program as well as the devastating flood of the Arno River. With ephemera, photographs, books, correspondence, official records, and newspaper clippings, the exhibit tells the story of the first Florence class as they navigated studies in an historical city, the development of the program, and FSU’s role in the relief efforts after the flood. The exhibit is open Monday-Thursday 10am to 6pm and on Friday from 10am to 5:30pm.
