Earlier today, Mika was honoured with a special ceremony where he was awarded the keys to the City of Florence by the mayor, Dario Nardella. The tradition is reserved for esteemed visitors, residents or notable others who the city wishes to honour, naming them honorary citizens of the city. It was a wonderful experience for Mika and a big honour to be recognised in such a way by a city he holds so close to his heart.
The ceremony itself was held in the stunning Sala Leone X frescoed room at the town hall, the historic Palazzo Vecchio. Mika later visited Galleria degli Uffizi with the director of the world famous museum and saw amazing works of art like Botticelli’s ‘Primavera.’
