Alexander Mackenzie in Florence - the 1880's

from A Musician's Narrative , page 100:

Popular attention was, as ever, concentrated solely upon Opera (Ponchielli's Gioconda the event of the year); excepting on rare occasions a Chamber Concert by Buonamici and the 'cellist Jefte Sbolci, chiefly supported by the British colony and a few Florentine families, there were no musical attractions.
