Navigating streets with no name
From Aug. 28:
Those of us in the business of mapping take pride in our wayfinding skills. Yet, on a recent trip to Florence, Italy, I found myself searching aimlessly for my hotel in the city's medieval street layout. Something was definitely wrong when I ended up between numbers 51 and 101 in
. I was lost. At first glance, the door numbers in this beautiful Italian city don't seem to be coherent. Numbers are either repeating, or worse, missing.
