Not only a Florentine issue, but something everyone, travelers and residents, should be aware of (from Reuters):

"ROME, Jan 13 (Reuters) - Europe is at no more risk from bird flu than it was before outbreaks which have killed three children in Turkey, Italy's disease prevention chief said on Friday, adding there was no need to impose travel restrictions. "Our attention has shifted, but the level of alert hasn't," Donato Greco head of the National Centre for Disease Prevention and Control told Reuters."
