Florence Bridge

If you planned to visit Florence, our travel advice is that you crosses the Pontevecchio with time. Because the step there is not simply a cross from shore to shore of the River Arno. A whole community of artists, street vendors, photographers and Florentines hurried gather on a minimum common space. The city has 6 bridges, but the Pontevecchio is the most famous as well as being the oldest. Originally built in wood by the Romans in the 1st century to unite both parts of the city by narrower River sector. A flood gave an account of him destroying it and in 1348 it was rebuilt by the architects Taddeo Gaddi and Neri Fioravanti.

Currently pays taxes for everything, something that formerly did not, and Moreover, since the end of the 16th century banned the sale of food to prevent odors from the butchers and fishmongers were located here until then.Since then and until today, a new Guild took charge of the market of the Ponte: jewelers. The structure of the bridge is very peculiar. The shopkeepers were expanding their premises and buildings stand out over the River. Passes the Vasari corridor, built by the architect Giorgi Vasari by order of Cosimo to connect the Palazzo Vecchio with the Pitti Palace passing over the Gallery of the offices above shops. The Guicciardini street begins at the end of the bridge and following it to the left we find the square and the Church of Santa Felicita. The area of the Pontevecchio is populated of museums, art galleries, fine restaurants and some of the best hotels in Florence. However, at a short distance you will find options of cheap hotels that will give us good service on our way through the capital of Tuscany.

London Assembly

He, who has already been in two Latino assemblies (one in Tottenham in April and another in Elephant and Castle in May), said in Spanish: This week the London Assembly voting an amnesty to immigrants to give them a way to become citizens. I agree fully with a social centre, cultural and commercial ibero and Latin American (Latin Quarter), by a date Iberian and Latin American in London and to have a celebration in Trafalgar Square, and a radio, newspaper and TV channel latinos. Darren reached us the motion that he wrote and which was adopted by 12 votes to (Labour Party, Liberals and Greens) against 5 votes (4 conservatives and 1 BNP), while a conservative abstained and there were 7 absent. It says: this Assembly note the election commitment given by the current mayor and other leading candidates in a single support, limited by time, and well earned regularization process for suitable immigrants, many of whom live and work in London, which would allow those who have been in the United Kingdom many years to be admitted to a trail of two years towards citizenship. This Assembly now resolves the do representations to the British Government in support of such regularization, and flame the Mayor to join us in the preparation of these requests, including by commissioning generate evidence regarding the positive impact on the economy of London.

The London Assembly is composed by 25 people who were elected the first of May and it is the entity that governs the capital along with Mayor Boris Johnson. Their functions are purely municipal (because only the two chambers of Parliament can make a law), but his gesture in favor of the undocumented is very significant since by the motion voted all Assembly members of the Government (labour) party and you have been asked to the Mayor’s Office that detail in a report on the benefits that there are for the economy in regularize as many hundreds of thousands of workers. The Mayor of London, however, if you have weight in matters of planning and police. About this Darren believes that the building of Wards Corner must be fully preserved. For latinos deserve to keep that estate and the idea of do a cultural center there and etc. this idea verdareramente, community with art galleries, cinema, theatre, you think truly very good, because it will benefit all London. Gavin Baker contains valuable tech resources. He said that not only latinos should also bear in mind the Cultural Olympiad of the 2,012 (the same that will be before the games and that will seek to demonstrate the multicultural character of London). Wednesday from 9 AM latinos will concentrate in order to attend the meeting of the London Assembly who shall preside at Johnson and in which the Mayor must respond, for the first time, a dozen of questions written on the Latino community.
