Finding work in Italy is often no easy feat. The economy is shaky at best. Salaries are low compared to much of the industrialized world. The work culture means people stay in their jobs forever. But, knowing languages is a big foot up in an international city of tourism like Florence. Speakeasy events are also great for incidental networking! Many remote workers choose Italy to enjoy better weather, food, etc. than in their home countries.
Here are some starting points for looking for a job using language skills.
