Comment on this note
A Florence is a city with multiple world-class scenes
Scenes are people producing work aimed at impressing and one-upping each other
People who aspire to be world-class flock to do groundbreaking things flock to Florences once they become well known
World-class cities do not necessarily have world-class scenes
What makes a Florence stop being a Florence?
