When the Arno River floods the city of Florence, Italy, in 1966, it leaves behind slimy, sticky, smelly mud everywhere. A young girl watches students from the US and other countries bravely trek through literal tons of sludge to save Florence’s treasures. Their destination is the Central LibraryBut the harsh journey there is nowhere

near as challenging as saving the centuries-old, priceless, hand-painted books stored in the

library’s basement.
