Now I Understand How Reinassance Came To Be, And Why It Started In Florence

Day 322/365: Inspiration comes from seeing things…

I’ve spent 4 nights at what is probably the hotel with the best view in the world. I arrived in Florence on a rainy morning. It was so cold, and I was so tired, I didn’t even cling when I saw the Duomo. I was almost asleep arriving in the square where the most important building of the city is.

But then, I took a bus to Piazzale Michelangelo and then a private shuttle to a hotel called Villa Agape. The hotel is situated meters away from the entrance to the city. It’s on a hill overlooking Tuscany itself, not just Florence, but also small villages and an infinite number of trees and other types of vegetation.

As soon as I opened the window to my room, I instantly got hit by a wave of inspiration, peace and motivation. I instantly discovered why the artists of the Renaissance were so inspired all of the time. With views like this one, you can never get bored or uninspired. It’s literally like looking at a painting.

It’s pretty clear to me now why the Renaissance started in Florence. You can’t but get inspired and want to create when something like this feasts your eyes on a daily basis. You can’t be sad. I tried being sad. I couldn’t be sad here, for the 4 days I’ve stayed at the villa. It was simply crazy beautiful.

And the best part was, the people from the villa upgraded me to a deluxe room completely for free. The room came with a sort of a private terrace. It was for the whole hotel, but nobody knew about it and I had it all for myself and have been able to work there in the mornings.

At sunset, I always tried to be at the place and see the sun hiding over the hills. I’ve been able to catch 3 out of the 4 sunsets from the four nights spent at Villa Agape. Next year, I’ll return in spring, when everything will be in bloom. I’ll try and paint something, not just take photos. I think I can do it.
