Storm Ciarán brought the heaviest rain to hit Tuscany in 50 years.
At least six people died in the extreme weather, and several others are missing; the army was drafted in to help evacuate those who were trapped.
The Italian government has announced it will provide €5m (around £4m) of emergency funds to help the region.
