Super vintage shop of Florence:

I was out of the office, going towards via de Neri in Santa Croce. I decided to pass by the narrows surrounding the Dome and I found this weird place with everything in it! Everything was so vintage that made everybody curious to look more and more to disocover all those little things that maybe you were used in the past, when you were a child.

Let’s start from vintage radios (those ade just some shelves 😅):

vintage radios

dominos and games
the first letters used for the press
tissues, radios and vintage air
sort of mini basket game

And here you see the funniest side: lots of posters from the 80s and first of 90s, the ones you have in your school room…

– The following pic shows the word ‘codesta’ that is a Tuscan word which means ‘this’ –

wonderful old style school posters

Note that the decorations are the old letters that were sent by air:

entry in the second room
mirros, bedside lamps, mannequin
LP case
old TV and radio signs
arts installation?!

Florence best rooftop ever: I don’t wanna move from here 😍

I’m not a snob and I don’t want to give you a wrong feeling, but believe me, the photos you’ll see in this article really represent the top rooftop of the city, or better, the very center of the city.

Some photos show you Santa Croce, Green mosque, the fantastic Dome, by day and by night:

Here you are a little demo 😁 and if you want to enjoy it remember it will be open until next weekend

Vogue fashion’s night out with coffee Illy for #DREAM campaign -vfno2015

It’s the day after. Just having a coffee in Gilli, one of the top place of Florence, and discovering about this collaboration through a lot of wonderful postcards, ‘free postcards’ 😳

I should have known before that Vogue and Illy were having a contest about the best landscapes and pictures representing Dreams. Lot of pictures took part, but just a little has been selected to become real paintings (or illustrations) that will be exhibit here.

Here you are the selected postcards:   

dream Carousel #vfno2015
dream Love #vfno2015

dream Postcards #vfno2015
dream Sea #vfno2015

Vogue fashion night out #vfno2015 Florence

Yes here we are! Just after some hours spent in the streets of the city center to explore the Vogue Fashion Night of 2015..

Agenda said it would have been full of people, parties, dj sets and shops open till late, but above all, the promotional gadgets were supposed to be everywhere. Not true. Gadgets can be translated into buying #vfno t-shirts for only 20€…25€ 

Even if the 30% is supposed to be part of charity funds for Meyer’s hospital, I literally think that this price is too much.

Anyway, let’s start with a little bit of pictures:
