This and the other images of Florence in this set do no show 'bomb damage', in the sense of damage inflicted in the course of Allied aerial bombing, but rather the aftermath of the swingeing demolitions carried out on the orders of Field Marshall Kesselring, prior to his retreat from Florence, in order to impede the Allied land advance. Presumably he used dynamite or the like. It was appalling either way, of course. At the same time, it should, I suppose, be remembered that Kesselring had earlier abandoned Rome without a fight and without laying a finger on it. He later estimated that this decision, which enabled the Allies to pursue him unimpeded, cost the lives of 10,000 of his men - hence his decision with respect to Florence, a decision hotly contestable nonetheless (to say the least).
