    Why John Florio?

    I’m interested in John Florio, his personality, life and works, and I believe much hasn’t been discovered yet about him. This website wants to share new documents and aspects of his personal life and career. I believe this is a time for ambitious, innovative works on John Florio and I think I’m in a place to contribute that.
