I just finished a 12 day tour of Italy with my daughter Allie. Allie was born in Milan in 1990 while we lived there for the Il Moro di Venezia America’s Cup Challenge. She has always wanted me to take her to Italy and this was the right time. We started out in San Giminiano where we stayed just outside the walled city on a farm house owned by a friend of mine named Gabriele Rafanelli. We visited the city with its 22 towers and medieval torture chambers. Then it was onto Florence, where we visited the Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti, the secret passageway between the two that the Medici family used, the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum, and Ponte Vecchio of course. Allie met Leonardo Ferragamo
