In 1820 Florenza became an autonomous municipality. In the late 19th century the bitterness of the climate and the poor economy led a large part of the inhabitants to emigration. Only recently the institution of the natural park and a keener sensibility for environments untouched by civilization has given rise to a tourist-based economy.
