Contribution from Prof. Franco Scaramuzzi, President of the Academy of the Georgofili
We are sending you the appeal that is being launched by this Academy so that you can include with the other articles you are publishing on the network.
The "Mud Angels" offered Florence a wonderful example of civic solidarity after the flood on November 6th 1966. The archives of the Georgofili contain the names of all the volunteers who worked at the headquarters of the Academy, which was flooded out with muddy water, helping us to save what was saveable, especially the books in the library. The Academy presented each of these volunteers with a certificate of merit.
The Academy will be organizing an exhibition for the thirtieth anniversary of that terrible event and would like to be able to again show its deep gratitude to its own personal "Mud Angels" and meet up with them in our headquarters, whose restoration has only recently been completed after the tragic bomb explosion of 1993. Unfortunately many of the addresses that were left at the time are now out-of-date and the only way we can get in touch with many of these volunteers is by sending them an invitation through the press. Below we include a list of names in alphabetic order, with the invitation to take part in the meeting that will be held at the Academy headquarters on this coming Wednesday, November 6th at 4pm. We would also be grateful if anyone can help suppy us with the more recent addresses of the following people:
