I used to know a fair bit about the buildings around the piazza Signoria back when I was a piazza crazed woman.. but I have a memory like a sieve sometimes. I suppose they would be virtually priceless even if they were for sale. But... that remod is not inexpensive. I suppose it needs some fix up anyway, but I don't like losing Vasari's vault, that church, or the level of risk...

I was there not too long ago and can't even contemplate those renovations! I must tell my husband and see what his thoughts are...

It is such a grand edifice.
