'The Bells of Florence' DVD Project

January, 2010

Friends of Florence, in conjunction with Florentine musician and composer Anthony Sidney, produced The Bells of Florence project, which captured and recorded information on every church bell in the city, including historical details, photographs, and – perhaps most importantly – sound recordings of their actual chimes. A DVD documenting the project, including the tolling of the bells, was produced and copies have been sent to the most important regional libraries of Italy, including La Biblioteca Nazionale di Firenze, for their archival use.
