An Italian town situated at the very heart of Italy (see picture 1), Florence (Firenze in Italian) is often referred to as the unique ‘cradle of the Renaissance’ (‘La culla del Rinascimento’). Its impressively high permore...
capita rate of trade achieved during the XV and XVI centuries would shrink today’s city of London (United Kingdom) to a dull village in comparison (see quotation 1).
Florence is populated by 366.488 residents, some of which are natives, the Florentines. To these, a population
of 10 millions-odd tourists (20% of which are Americans and 7.8% British) add up every year. Due to this extraordinary flow of tourists, the Florentines have developed a harsh sense of detachment towards strangers (though for most of the Florentines tourists represent a source of wealth). This does not mean that the
average Florentine is a racist or close-minded, characteristics that do not appeal to people living where modern culture and civilization developed five centuries ago. However, it may account for the hard time foreigners face when they try to socialize with locals (see quotation 2).
Florence’s population is composed of four distinct clusters of people – nam...
Also known as "Flotown".
Florence, Alabama is a small city in northern Alabama and is the county seat of Lauderdale County. It is host to Florence High, who have some pretty bitchin' athletics and an amazing theater department, and also the University of North Alabama who have the same. There are plenty of private Christian schools to choose from if public schooling sounds a little rough.
There are a ton of museums and Frank Lloyd Wright has a house here. No one cares about any of that, though. Most people only go to eat at the amazing, relatively unknown restaurants and go shopping.
Notable sights include Rivertown Coffee, Crocodile Eds, Wal-Mart, Deibert Park, Ricebox, Wok n Roll, the Mall, UNA, Shoals Theater, the Smokehouse, and generally just the whole downtown area.
Also a mecca for those too lazy to shell out gas money to go to Huntsville.
"Hey, let's go to Florence!"
"No... Florence, Alabama... Dumbass."
"Let's go to Huntsville!"
"I need gas money..."
"Let's go to Florence!"

I've had way too many negronis tonight...
Florence, SC not Italy. This place is not only home to some of the stupidest drivers on the planet but also some of the most notorious gangstas on the east coast sarcasm. Often referred to as "Flo-Town" and divided by rival school territories, West & South, this town probably has the most heated football games in the state, because what losing team shouldn't go out with a bang? literally. We have thugs, we have rednecks and we have old people. Over the span of 5 years we have managed to pull through with some top notch restaurants and are even looking forward to a hooters sometime soon *fingers crossed*! Sure, we're a small town with not much to offer aside from 2 theatres, fmu & a mall, but we do have 2 walmarts and that's all that matters. :)
"Hey! let's do something tonight... We'll flip a coin, heads the mall or tails the movies."
"Ayyy homie, we just got beat by west AGAIN. Lets shoot em up..."
"Let's head to Flo-town & go to walmart."
...only in florence, sc
