Floods Of Florence

 

***

The Phil Ochs song about the 1966 Florence, Italy floods (fifty straight days of rain breached the walls of the River Arno which runs through the city) set to BBC footage of cleaning up the aftermath, as people attempted to save some of the artwork stored in the lower levels of museums, churches and warehouses.

Thanks to  YouTuber OnionFart (!) for the great job of putting this together.
