Inferno Florencetown

“I am the Shade.

Through the dolent city, I flee.

Through the eternal woe, I take flight.

Along the banks of the river Arno, I scramble, breathless… turning left onto Via dei Castellani,

making my way northward, huddling in the shadows of the Uffizi”. P.14

 1This is an excerpt from the prologue by American author Dan Brown’s latest book entitled, Inferno.  It’s the fourth novel Brown has written in a series, following Angels & Demons, The Da Vinci Code and The Lost Symbol. The story trails protagonist, Professor Robert Langdon, as he continues to yet again, take on a quest while skillfully deciphering codes, texts and of course, symbols.

 The best part about the newest installation in the Langdon series? This time, Brown takes the adventure to Florence, Italy. A city well known for its rich history in art, culture, architecture and so much more; Brown is relentless as he paints a picture of this beautiful Renaissance city while weaving in his clues and revelations as discovered in Inferno.

“At the heart of the skyline, a mountainous dome of red tiles rose up, its zenith adorned with a gilt copper ball that glinted like a beacon. Il Duomo”. P.35
