dinner at the beacci

dinner at the beacci - student project

i would like to create a multi-layered map that traces several generations of my family as we have traveled in italy.  while i was 5 months pregnant with my first daughter, my mother and i travelled together in italy, inspired by the journals of my great grandmother and my grandmother.  my great grandmother lived for half the year in florence every year at the pensione tournabouni beacci until she was into her nineties.  the hotel is still family run, and my mother and i were able to stay in nana's room, that they have dedicated to her.  

i imagine creating a visual text to accompany the written journals that we traveled alongside for my daughter when she grows up, as well as mapping my mother's and my travels.
