Z as Zenobius

Saint Zenobius (San Zanobi) is one of the saint protecting Florence, even if he is not the patron saint (it is St. John the Baptist, celebrated on June, 24). He was one of the first bishops of the city, and the miracle of the dry elm is linked to him. Probably he himself wanted the construction of the Cathedral of S. Reparata.
