Activity description

Handicraft in Florence is an experience between the art from the past and the contemporary one. It is a journey to discover the great Renaissance artists who have made Florence famous all over the world. But it is above all a journey through the workshops of painters, sculptors, artists and contemporary artisans.

In fact, to see the art of Florence you do not necessarily have to visit a museum. My city is so beautiful also because it is full of workshops of expert and passionate weavers, carvers, glassmakers, mosaicists and goldsmiths.

I chose to offer this experience about handicraft in Florence for two reasons. The first is that I find very fascinating to go around the old workshops and see the artisans at work. The second is because it reminds me of when I was a child. Every Saturday morning at 9.30 my father took me and my twin brother Mattia, around museums or to browse into the shops of Florentine master craftsmen.

I remember my amazement in front of those marble sculptures that I found so serious and important. My eyes were enraptured by the reflections of the bronze. I lost myself in front of a lot of paintings while to look for the funniest details.

Maybe it was then that I fell in love with art. Today, after a few years and after studying art history and crafts, I want to accompany you among these workshops. Just like my father did! Come with me to discover the beauty of handicraft in Florence.
