The Liberty in Florence, Mireille Valentine’s Florentine “commesso” and an original pre-dinner drink at S. Forno. On March 21st, after the success of the first installment, we meet for the second time to follow an itinerary that starts at 6:00PM in Piazza Tasso.
Our walk will go hunting for some of the architectonic treasures of the Florentine Liberty in the Oltrarno, an unusual and little known artistic identity of Florence. First stop is in via Giano della Bella, where we find two of these buildings. We will then continue inside the Officina Creativa/Conventino, in the workshop of Mireille Valentin, who will show us the charm of the Florentine commesso, one of the most refined, old and precious techniques of Florentine handicraft. We will then continue our walk to enjoy a truly original drink in one of the most fragrant corners of S. Frediano, between via dei Serragli and via Santa Monaca, at S. Forno, a neighborhood bakery with a long standing presence, where tradition, quality and innovation perfectly blend.
After this appointment on March 21st, here are the next meetings on the schedule:
April 11: “The alleys of the Oltrarno and the art of glassmaking at Moleria Locchi”
