Summary
"In Merchants in the City of Art, Anne Schiller addresses classic anthropological questions about culture change and places them in a contemporary context, bringing together issues of work, heritage, immigration, and tourism. San Lorenzo, a neighborhood located in the historic centre of the celebrated city of Florence, and home to a market that has existed since before the Renaissance, is in transition. Globalization pressures--specifically international tourism and migration--are forcing changes in the way vendors work, which in turn raises larger questions about identity, authenticity, and heritage. This lively and engaging ethnography, written and designed with students in mind, uses the experiences and perspectives of a set of long-time market vendors to explore how cultural identities are formed, and how they change, and are negotiated during periods of profound social and economic change"--
