Italy Superior and ancient Rome is a necessary post to explain the Venetian (Italian) influence of Florida, formally, called La floridas, which means the land of the flowers.
The Venetians are named after their city Venice, Italy, which is a city built around water with a serious of water canals. Likewise, Florida is a state with thousands of water canals similar to the ones in Venice, Italy. Venice was established by those Phoenician Moors that conquered the Iberian Peninsula, Spain, Italy, etc., which explains why Venice is a water canal city since the Moors as mariners were sea people (see image of Phoenician Maur); and this also explains the Moorish/ Tartarian architecture found all throughout Venice, Italy.
The Phoenicians were initially the Naga-Maya (Mayans) that civilized the world after their home Teotihuacan (the capital of Atlantis) had sunk (see blog post, “Teotihuacan is the home of Thoth). In addition, the Phoenicians are also from the Americas: https://www.americaistheoldworld.com/the-phoenicians-are-from-the-americas/.
These Naga-Maya (Phoenicians/ Atlanteans/ Egyptians) came to Florida and built the Moorish/ Tartarian architecture throughout Florida: https://www.americaistheoldworld.com/gibraltar-of-the-west/.
In this post are images of the Kapok Tree Inn and its exotic Italian (Venetian) restaurant, which is located around the Sam Ash Music Store, in Clearwater, Florida, near Tampa Bay (Bey) and by the Bay bridge. The Greco-Roman Architecture (Moorish or Tartarian Architecture) is amazing. Imagine how this place looked like in her prime! The Kapok Tree is the Sacred Tree of the Aztecs (Atlanteans) and Mayans (Egyptians), so yes…, Phoenician Mayans (Moors/ Tartars) built this. This place has two Medici lions at its entrance, which are a symbol of Florence, Italy.
The city of Florence was established by Julius Caesar, around 59 BC, as a settlement for his veteran soldiers and was named originally Fluentia, because it was built between two rivers, which was later changed to Florentia (“flowering”). Florentia sounds a lot like Florida, which also means Flowers or the land of flowers. In 1513, Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon named the state La Florida – “Land of Flowers” – for the Easter season in which he made his discovery.
Also, Florida and Italy are both shaped like boots, and they are both Peninsula’s. The only difference is that Florida is shaped like a upside down boot.
Additionally, Italy and Florida share some of the same city place names, such as: Naples, Venice, Florence, and Milan. We can also Include Rome, Georgia, since Florida is attached to Georgia and Florida used to be a huge territory of land called La Floridas (Tameri), which included Georgi, most of North America, and some parts of Canada and Mexico. Georgia also has a Milan and a Florence.
Yes, the European Italy (Rome) was patterned after greater Italy or Italy Superior that was called La floridas. I say this because Ancient Rome and Greece was in the Americas: https://www.americaistheoldworld.com/ancient-greece-and…/.
Additionally, the first Vatican City was in Mexico near the Capital of Atlantis, which was Teotihuacan: https://www.americaistheoldworld.com/teotihuacan-is-the…/.
Alessandro de’ Medici (22 July 1510 – 6 January 1537), nicknamed “il Moro” (the Moor) due to his dark complexion, Duke of Penne and the first Duke of the Florentine Republic (from 1532), was ruler of Florence from 1530 to his death in 1537. He was the first Medici to rule Florence as a hereditary monarch, Alessandro was also the last Medici from the senior line of the family to lead the city. His assassination at the hands of distant cousin Lorenzaccio caused the title of Duke to pass to Cosimo I de Medici, from the family’s junior branch.
The Medici family was very powerful in medieval history, since there were several Pope’s in the Medici family, one of them was Pope Leo XI. Pope Leo XI (ItalianLeone XI; 2 June 1535 – 27 April 1605), born Alessandro Ottaviano de’ Medici, was head of the Catholic Church and ruler of the Papal States from 1 April 1605 to his death.[1] His pontificate is one of the briefest in history, having lasted under a month. He was from the prominent House of Medici originating from Florence.[2]
The Medici family resigned from the Papal States, due to infighting stemming from this family not wanting to be a part of the now corrupted Papal States. However, when you are a part of an organized gang (the Vatican) you can’t just leave without war/ fighting, hence the ole true saying, “Once you are in you can’t get out.”
As a result of the conflict between the Medici’s and the Vatican, the Medici’s created the Medici lions. These two lions are known as the Medici Lions because they once belonged to Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici and adorned Villa Medici, his home in Rome, until they were moved to Loggia in 1789. This lion is called Marzocco (Morrocco*?) and is a symbol of protection for the city of Florence, Italy, aka, the Free Republic of Florence against the imperial Eagle of Rome.
The heraldic lion—also known as the Marzocco lion—is the animal symbol representing the free Republic of Florence. As the legend goes, the Florentine Republic chose the symbol of the lion over other animals because lions can tear apart the eagle, which is the symbol of imperial power: https://www.florenceinferno.com/marzocco-symbol-of-florence/.
In addition, at Whitehall in West Palm Beach, Florida, the Home of Robber Baron, “Henry Morisson Flager,” there is a fabulous Venetian Mansion by the water that also has two Medici Lions at the Front Entrance with a Giant Kapok Tree of the Mayans on the property: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shNollkkukQ&t=10s. The Middle name of Flager is Morisson and it means “son of the Moor.” Could Flager really be the son of a Moor or the conqueror of the Moors since he claimed towns and properties that belonged to the Moors? It was a little bit of both.
Whitehall was initially the Whitehall Hotel with a Moorish red roof (see post image), but now it is called the Whitehall Museum. This building even has a small train station attached to it that is made from copper and it has an old train inside of the station (see post images).
