“Unofficial” Goodbye..

The time has come.. I just left my house in Florence and I’m on my way to Ancona and then to my hometown, Athens.

20140722-071225-25945107.jpg

This change will be really difficult at first. Of course I’ll miss this amazing city and all the people I’m leaving behind. This is an unofficial goodbye not only because I’m coming back soon for my thesis, but because I intend to visit really often! So beware!
Below some photos from this last week in Florence. Have a nice day people!

Hi everyone! Yesterday I attended the Disaronno Terrace event at Società Canottieri Firenze (Rowing club).. It’s the second event organized by Disaronno in Florence and every week they’re organizing similar events all over Italy. Of course the location in Florence is the best by far!

Great music by WHITE CHESTNUT featuring Valentina Nervi and Alessandro Gigli..!

#INFOODWETRUST

Hello everyone! Yesterday I attended the cooking show and book presentation of “In Food We Trust” by Riccardo and Stefano of Gnam Box held at the new floor of the Central Market in Florence.. They talked about their first recipe book and their popular food blog. They were answering to questions and at the same time preparing a delicious cold pasta which we tasted, accompanied by a glass of prosecco!

Thanks to Riccardo and Stefano for this special occasion!

Battistero dressed in Pucci..

20140617-172846-62926698.jpg

It’s been a few months that the baptistery is under construction. Some days ago passing from Piazza Duomo i’ve seen this new look which is totally amazing! So today I passed again and I took some photos with my phone. Enjoy!

Emilio Pucci “dresses” the Baptistery of San Giovanni with the colours and graphics of the Battistero scarf, reinterpreting its façades and becoming a sponsor of the restoration of the building that truly represents the historical-artistic heritage of Florence, dedicated to San Giovanni Battista, the patron saint of the Florence, which stands opposite the Duomo of Santa Maria del Fiore in Piazza San Giovanni.

20140617-172947-62987331.jpg

During the celebrations held on the occasion of Pitti Immagine Uomo from the 17th to 20th of June in Florence, visitors will be able to admire the art installation inspired by the Battistero scarf designed by Emilio Pucci in 1957 which shows a view from above the Piazza San Giovanni interpreted in vibrant lemon yellow, orange, fuchsia and Emilio pink.
The Apse side of the Baptistery will be clad in a giant size portrayal of the original framed scarf. The other seven sides of the octagonal building will be restyled à la Emilio Pucci; the monument will thus be clothed with eight printed sheets over 2000 sqm.
This very special scarf signifies the link of Emilio Pucci with Florence, a key reference point for the Maison.
An inauguration cocktail in honour of the art installation will be held on Tuesday June 17th at Palazzo Pucci where the Maison invites visitors to discover the drawing and printing techniques of the scarf through a special experience entitles Design the Dream, celebrating the savoir-faire of the House.
On the occasion of this special event, Emilio Pucci will open its archives to all visitors.
Design the Dream will then continue for a further three days, from Wednesday 18th to Friday 20th June, at the Boutique Emilio Pucci in Florence, to offer customers too the chance to assist to the creation of the historical Battistero scarf, available in several colours at the store. (source)
