“Florence RockinArt” is a web-app created to deepen the knowledge on the natural and artificial stone materials of which the monuments of Florence are made up. The web-app, in addition to brief historical and architectural notes, presents a detailed description of the geological and mineralogical characteristics of the stones that, with their colors, characterize Florence: the warm ocher color of the medieval Pietraforte, the gray of the Pietra Serena of the Renaissance architecture; and furthermore: the white of the Marbles, the red of the Limestones and the green of the Serpentinites.
Following the colors of the stones of Florence means looking at the city with new eyes and from a different and more attentive perspective. This is a new itinerary, between styles and materials, through the centuries: from the Romanesque of San Miniato al Monte to the Gothic of Santa Croce, from the extravagant Mannerism of the Fountain of Neptune and the Boboli Gardens to the Baroque of the Complex of San Firenze and the Church of San Michele and San Gaetano and the works of the great Italian architects of the twentieth century.
Florence RockinArt is also in English and can be consulted online or downloaded (free of charge) on the mobile phone from the following address: https://www.florence-rockinart.it
