"Florentine Fantasy" is a chart by The Artists Collection, Needle Adventures Series, published in 1993.  It diagrams two bargello pieces, one a small box top size and the other a longer rectangle.  This chart is fairly easily available today.  This site has three for sale.

Several folks have stitched this piece and posted photographs on their blogs.  Here is The Committed Stitcher, who used red, white and blue for colors.  The final piece is shown below.
