Organized by an NYU Florence student Madison McCormick

Florence is known as the Renaissance centre of innovation in art, ideas, institutions and industry. Many do not know that Florence could also be considered the birthplace of civic care for children in 1419 which traces up to the modern day child rights movement. The UNICEF Office of Research is hosted in one of Florence’s oldest and most important structures, Ospedale Degli Innocenti. It has provided care for women and children continuously for more than five centuries. Each day hundreds of people walk through Piazza Santissima Annunziata without noticing the significant historical and contemporary role this building has and continues to play in influencing and interacting with not only Florence-but, thanks to UNICEF-the rest of the world.
