Julie Andrews sang in the movie how “the hills are alive with the sound of music”. We could imagine this chant not in the Alps but at the Tuscan peaks instead: “I go to the hills when my heart is lonely, my heart will be blessed with the sound of music”. At Casa Musicale G. Ceccherini, besides offering space for different courses, repair and rental of instruments, it is possible to buy a cello or a piano, an electric guitar or an amplifier, a solfeggio book or a violin string. I am not a regular of this unique music store in the heart of Florence, but from the cortile of my apartment — which overlooks one of its multiple rooms — I am amused by distinguishing how different piano students evolve every day. Naturally, this is sometimes a truthful delight; some others, just an ordeal.
