Another Maveba conference, organized by Claudia Manfredi together with a meeting of the COST 2103 project. This was the edition commemorating the 10th anniversary of this biennial meeting dedicated to voice that brings together medical doctors and engineers. My current occupation leave me little time for sightseeing in the cities that I travel on business and Florence was no exception. Fortunately, and as in previous editions, Claudia organized private visits by the end of the day to some of the city monuments. This year we visited the Palazzo Davanzati, in which the welcome reception was held, and the Palazzo Pitti which hosted the gala dinner. On Wednesday I managed a few hours for wandering in the maze of the historical center, passing along the Arno River on a beautiful sunny morning. I crossed the Ponte Vecchio and bought another pair of Madova gloves, which is becoming a tradition. The almost winter sun produced some interesting photographs of the Arno bridges and of the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore. The photographs can be viewed with greater resolution in the picasa album.
