Hats, between Art & Eccentricity

The first exhibition dedicated Hats The Costume Gallery opens the door to an accessory not intended to go unnoticed. This is the first monographic exhibition dedicated to the hat, whose collections, inherit by the museum amounted to more than a thousand units, of which only a selection will be displayed at the exhibition. Despite prevailing specimens of pretty well known fashion houses such as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, John Rocha, Prada, Gianfranco Ferrè and international famous milliners of the present and the past days like Philip Treacy , Stephen Jones, Caroline Reboux, Claude Saint-Cyr, Paulette, this is also the first time that there are artifacts on display of Italian and Florentine millineries, most of them unknown to the general public. Here you will find the hat as a work of art, with its own aesthetic harmony, its sculptural essence, the chromatic component and refinement ornamental details . The subjective and changeable hat, the hat "work of art ", the hat as a "design object" of the twentieth century and the third millennium. The hat interpreted from a purely aesthetic and playful point of view. The exhibition includes important loans from Cecilia Matteucci Lavarini, a private collector of haute couture and an illustrious donor of the Costume Gallery, whose hats are characterized for the value, taste and style. This is also an opportunity to expose the extraordinary sketches made ​​specifically by Maestro Alberto Lattuada and to propose to the public the specimens created by Clemente Cartoni, a famous Roman milliner fifties and sixties. The exhibition has been realized thanks to the contribution of The Florence Hat Consortium (Angiolo Frasconi, bettina®-Raffaello Bettini, Luca della Lama, Facopel Produzione, Grevi, Corti by Cleò, Marzi Cappelli Firenze, Nanà Firenze by MazzantiPiume, Luigi & Guido Tesi, Soprattutto… Cappelli, Trendintex, Memar, Fratelli Reali & C spa, Santelli Francesca, Inverni Firenze 1892, Michelagnoli Giuseppe & Figli, Ambuchi e Bandinelli) that expose some of the most characteristic examples of major Tuscan hat manufacturing companies, heirs of the ancient craftsmanship of the Florentine Straw Hat. 3 december 2013 - 18 may 2014

Рождение шляпы: когда искусство и причуды шагают в ногу Галерея Костюма откроет свои двери произведениям искусства, которые невозможно обойти стороной. Речь идет о монографической выставке, посвященной шляпке. На ней будут выставлены различные коллекции головных уборов, которые являются достоянием музеев и были принесены в дар в различные периоды времени многочисленными персонажами. Всего насчитывается более тысячи экземпляров, которые обычно хранятся на складе, но сейчас будут выставлены частично на всеобщее обозрение. Несмотря на то, что большая часть экспонатов принадлежит известным брендам таким, как Кристиан Диор, Дживанши, Шанель, Ив Сен Лоран, Джон Роша, Прада, Джанфранко Ферре и прочим известным в мире кутюрье настоящего и прошлого таким, как Филип Трейси, Стивен Джонс, Каролин Ребо, Клод Сен-Кир, Полетт, впервые здесь представлены также творения итальянских и флорентийских малоизвестных дизайнеров, о существовании которых можно было только догадываться. В организации выставки под эгидой Министерства культурных ценностей и туризма, Региональной администрации, заведующей культурными и ландшафтными ценностями Тосканы, Особого Ведомства исторического, художественного и этно-антропологического достояния, а также Союза Музеев города Флоренции, Галереи Костюма Дворца Питти с обществом «Музеи Флоренции», принял участие Консорциум «Шляпа Флоренции», от которого и были выставлены некоторые наиболее характерные экспонаты основных тосканских шляпных мануфактур, унаследовавших старинные секреты изготовления флорентийской соломенной шляпки. 3 декабря 2013- 18 мая 2014

Renaissance

Uffizi Gallery

Pitti Uomo

The word Renaissance, used for the first time by Vasari in his book "Vite" (1550), refers to the historic period between the late 14th century and the second half of the 16th century, which was characterized by the rebirth of the cultural and artistic life. This phenomenon involved the whole of Europe but its first roots undoubtedly originate in early Florentine Humanism. It meant a complete release of thought and action from the strict theological and very limited dogmas of the Middle Ages.

The Uffizi Gallery covers an area of about 8.000 square meters and contains one of the most important collections of art of all times, including classical sculpture and paintings on canvas and wood by 13th to 18th century Italian and foreign schools. The Gallery of the Uffizi was also the first museum ever to be opened to the public: in fact the Grand Duke granted permission to visit it on request from the year 1591. Its four centuries of history make the Uffizi Gallery the oldest museum in the world.

Pitti Uomo once again confirms the level of its proposals, thanks to the presence of over 1020 brand names, plus another 70 collections for women presented at Pitti W at the Dogana. The greatest fashion houses choose Pitti Uomo and Florence to present their collections and special projects in order to consolidate worldwide strategies at the beginning of the season. Pitti Uomo is becoming increasingly international with an important rise in the number and quality of applications.

Слово Ренессанс, впервые используемое Вазари в его книге «Жизни» (1550), относится к историческому периоду между 14-ым столетием и второй половиной 16-го, который был ознаменован возрождением культуры и искусства. Это явление вовлекло за собой всю Европу, чьи первые корни безусловно восходят к эпохе раннего Флорентийского Гуманизма.

Галерея Уффици охватывает площадь около 8000 квадратных метров и содержит одну из самых важных коллекций произведений искусства всех времен, в том числе классические скульптуры и картины на холстах и дереве итальянских и зарубежных школ с 13 по 18 века. Галерея Уффици был первым музеем который был открыт для публичного посещения - великий князь дал разрешение на посещение его частной коллекции по запросу в 1591 году.

Pitti Uomo еще раз подтвердила уровень того, что предлагает, благодаря присутствию более, чем 1020 брендов, плюс еще 70 коллекций женской одежды, представленной на Pitti W в павильоне бывшей таможни. Наиболее знаменитые дома моды выбирают Pitti Uomo и Флоренцию, чтобы выставить свои коллекции и особые проекты для консолидации всемирных тенденций в начале сезона.

Santa Maria Novella

Santo Spirito

Tuscan Cuisine

Piazza Santa Maria Novella is dominated by the breathtaking facade of its Basilica, the masterpiece of Leon Battista Alberti (1456-70), though the lower part dates from the 14th century. Santa Maria Novella is chronologically the first of the great Florentine basilicas. Its name, “Novella”, comes from the fact that it was built on the site of a 9th century oratory, called Santa Maria delle Vigne, which had already been enlarged in 1094.

Piazza Santo Spirito is surrounded by 15th century palaces and completed by a pretty garden with a fountain in the centre. Sit down for a breather here at one of the open-air cafè’s or restaurants and enjoy the popular and rather bohemian atmoshere of the square. It is always a hive of activity, due also to the fact that many Florentines still live and work here and it has not, as yet, been taken over by offices and hordes of tourists.

Над площадью Санта Мария Новелла возвышается захватывающий дух фасад Базилики — шедевр Леона Баттиста Альберти (1456-70). Хотя нижняя часть и датируется 14-ым веком, Санта Мария Новелла является хронологически одной из первых великих флорентийских базилик. Ее имя «Новелла» берет начало еще со времен самой первой постройки, которая стояла на этом месте — часовни, датируемой 9-ым веком, чье имя Санта Мария делле Винье.

Площадь Санто-Спирито окружена зданиями 15-го века и завершается прелестным садом с фонтаном по центру. Присядьте и сделайте здесь передышку в одном из кафе или ресторанов на открытом воздухе, чтобы насладиться оживленной и богемной атмосферой этой площади. Она всегда напоминает пчелиный улей, что многие флорентийцы до сих пор живут и работают здесь, где пока нет особой концентрации офисов и орд туристов.

Plain, simple and basic, the Tuscan cuisine needs little elaboration to be able to conquer new admirers. The care given to the quality of the basic ingredients is an essential part of Tuscan cultural traditions, still closely linked to country cooking and genuine products. You only need taste a slice of Tuscan bread soaked in olive oil to appreciate the essence of this cuisine. The locally produced extra-virgin oil in fact accompanies almost all the most characteristic recipes in the region.

В Тоскане, как известно, производятся вина высочайшего качества. Ее холмы покрыты виноградниками и в никакая другая местность не может похвалиться таким выбором вин. Здесь можно продегустировать лучшие в мире красные вина как например Брунелло ди Монтальчино, Вино Нобиле ди Монтепульчано, Карминьяно и Мореллино ди Скансано, Помино, Ансоника и вина Ельбы .

Il Bisonte

Meeting Wanny Di Filippo IL BISONTE Via del Parione, 31r - Tel. 055.215722 www.ilbisonte.com

IL BISONTE Интервью с Ванни ди Филиппо Мастерская по производству кожгалантереи бренда «Il Bisonte» была открыта в 1970-ом году по инициативе Ванни ди Филиппо в историческом здании Дворца Корсини по улице дель Парионе, между улицей Торнабуони и набережной Лунгарно, прямо в центре г. Флоренции, чтобы вскоре начать производство сумок, бумажников, записных книжек, ремней и прочих кожаных аксессуаров. Не выходящие из моды предметы, выполненные из тончайшей воловьей кожи, иными словами, из кожи, окрашенной растительными красками с процентным содержанием жира, который делает ее мягкой на ощупь и придает тот самый поверхностный налет, который с годами делает ее еще красивее. С годами производство значительно расширилось, продолжая поддерживать высочайший уровень качества и абсолютно эксклюзивный дизайн. Сегодня изделия «Il Bisonte» хорошо знают и любят во всем мире. Несмотря на широкую распространенность, маркетинговая политика бренда направлена на сохранение оригинального стиля, а также неизменность традиционных технологий.

18

The craft laboratory of Il Bisonte opened in 1970 on the initiative of Wanny di Filippo in historic Palazzo Corsini in Via del Parione, between Via Tornabuoni and the Lungarno, right in the centre of Florence, and soon began producing handbags, bags, wallets, pocket books, belts and a variety of other accessories. Timeless objects carried out in the finest vacchetta leather, in other words, in natural vegetable-tanned hide that becomes increasingly beautiful as age and sunlight build up the patina on its surface. Over the years the company has grown considerably, while maintaining its extremely high level of quality and absolutely exclusive design. Today Il Bisonte boasts a worldwide distribution. In spite of its expansion, the company has managed to keep its original style and the traditional craft characteristics of its brand intact. Mr. Di Filippo, in recent years your company is reported to have a pretty dynamic and original web presence, what is the strategy of brand communication in relation to new media? The strategy is simple: learn as much as possible about this medium we are using, to make the most of its potential for spreading of information. When did you open the online shop Il Bisonte and what do you think are the markets most susceptible to this innovation? We started in September 2010, 3 years ago. The intention was to reach an even wider and younger audience and to introduce ourselves in new markets and it seems to me that we are succeeding. We realized that the world was not only changing in terms of communication, but also in sales and we have adapted. It 's a challenge and the first to pick it up were some of our key markets such as France, Belgium, United States and Australia, but then came also the United Kingdom and Germany where our traditional sales network is less structured than elsewhere.

interview | il bisonte

— Сколько времени существует магазин «Il Bisonte» онлайн и какие рынки сбыта оказались наиболее восприимчивыми к этому нововведению? — Мы начали в сентябре 2010-ом году. Это было сделано с целью добраться до более широкой и более молодежной аудитории, а также внедриться на новых рынках. Первыми откликнулись на предложение Франция, Бельгия, Соединенные Штаты и Австралия, после которых появился спрос и в Великобритании и Германия. — И в заключение хотелось бы поговорить о Вашем блоге, wannytalksbyhands. С какой целью был открыт этот блог и каково его дальнейшее развитие? — Я люблю учиться делать то, чего не умею. Так случилось и с моим блогом. Я любопытен и хотел попробовать эту «параллельную жизнь». В один день я рассказываю о моей любимой волейбольной команде «Il Bisonte» в Сан-Кашано и в другой день пишу о допремьерном показе фильма, в котором я принимал участие в Париже. На самом деле у меня нет какой-либо четкой линии: я просто желаю, чтобы все те люди, которые следили за мной и оставались мне верны на протяжении последних 40 лет, смогли принимать участие в моей жизни тем или иным способом. — Какими будут следующие новинки от «Il Bisonte»? — Сейчас сложно сказать. Не программирую наперед. Безусловно буду продолжать творить и экспериментировать. Больше мне нечего добавить: следите за мной — и узнаете сами.

Finally I would like to talk about your blog, wannytalksbyhands. It seems to me that it is a good starting point for exploring all the initiatives and creative drifts Il Bisonte has pursued in recent years, from videos to cartoons and manga, all the communication projects and the original philosophy that has always distinguished your brand. What's the aim and reason you have started this blog and how will it develop? All the things I started in my life, I started them because I didn't really know hot to do them, so i started them out of curiosity, first of all. And so it was for my blog. I am a tech-enthusiast but, like all those of my generation, I'm not really a 'digital native' and I discovered and learned about these new tools, this new forms of communication, as an adult. I was curious and wanted to try this "parallel life" . There is no particular strategy behind the choice of the topics, I simply speak about the things i'm found. So, one day I write of my beloved volleyball team - Il Bisonte San Casciano - and the next day I talk about a movie premier I took part in Paris with famous actors and directors. There is no real theme other than the desire to share my life, sharing some of my experiences, sharing my gratitude to the many people who over the past 40 years have had the desire to follow me and love me, and that I will probably never really meet in person. For all of them I wanted to share a little of me. I had a busy life full of satisfaction, but I owe this to all the people who have worked with me seriously and passionately and all of those who bought and enjoyed my creations. What are the next Il Bisonte moves? Oh look , I'm not able to say that. I tend not to plan too much. I sail in sight, as they say. Certainly I will keep on creating and experimenting. Cannot tell more anyway, you'll have to follow me to find out.


Renaissance in Florence

The rebirth of the cultural and artistic life

The word Renaissance, used for the first time by Vasari in his book "Vite" (1550), refers to the historic period between the late 14th century and the second half of the 16th century, which was characterized by the rebirth of the cultural and artistic life. This phenomenon involved the whole of Europe but its first roots undoubtedly originate in early Florentine Humanism. Thus the rediscovery of classical studies, seen from a free and lay point of view, made it possible to uphold man and his possibilities of free thought and action through a critical analysis of his world that followed the guide-lines of the old masters. It meant a complete release of thought and action from the strict theological and very limited dogmas of the Middle Ages. Fundamentally, from the philosophical point of view, the Renaissance meant naturalism, in other words, the study of man and the universe without the use of metaphysics. Man is the centre and measure of all things, a chosen creator who echoes the deep harmony between the microcosm and the macrocosm. Niccolò Cusano, Marsilio Ficino, Giovanni Pico della Mirandola and Giordano Bruno re-read Plato and, each one in their own way, found the inspiration to compare man with his capacity for knowledge (Neoplatonism). Alberti, Salutati and Vergerio rediscovered the values of human independence and

dignity in the philosophy of the Stoics. Lorenzo Valla, following the ideas of Epicurus, claimed the end of the principle of authority ("ipse dixit"). Pietro Pomponazzi, a follower of Aristotle, made his own completely laical interpretation, denying immortality of the soul and proposing ethics that were free of religious considerations. Machiavelli supported the separation of politics from morality. Telesio eliminated metaphysics from natural science. Campanella dared propose a "natural religion" and a Utopian protocommunism. A similar release from the strict bonds of metaphysics took place in the world of science and set the basis for the elaboration of mathematicalexperimental methods. New category of scientists and engineers was born of whom Leonardo is one of the finest examples. New sciences like astrology, alchemy and natural magic helped to reject the old Aristotelian method, founded on pure deduction. Important progress was made in the astronomic field by Copernicus, Tycho Brahe and Keplero, opening up the way for Galileo and heliocentrism. In the field of mechanics, Tartaglia and Benedetti rejected the Aristotelian idea of motion being a metaphysical absolute. For mathematics, the Italian algebraists Cardano were able to resolve third degree equations, which the Greeks and Arabs had not managed to do, and freed calculation from all purely dogmatic considerations.

Слово Ренессанс, впервые используемое Вазари в его книге «Жизни» (1550), относится к историческому периоду между 14-ым столетием и второй половиной 16-го, который был ознаменован возрождением культуры и искусства. Это явление вовлекло за собой всю Европу, чьи первые корни безусловно восходят к эпохе раннего флорентийского гуманизма, что означало полное освобождение от мыслей и действий, присущих строгим теологическим и крайне ограниченным средневековым догмам. Освобождение от тесных уз метафизики охватило весь научный мир и положило основу для экспериментальных математических методов. Зародилась новая категория ученых и инженеров, одним из ярчайших примеров которых был Леонардо да Винчи. Новые науки, такие как астрология, алхимия и природная магия помогли отодвинуть на второй план старый метод Аристотеля, основанный на чистой дедукции. Важного прогресса достигла сфера астрономии, благодаря Копернику, Тико Браге и Кеплеру, открывших путь Галилею и гелиоцентризму. В сфере механики Тарталья и Бенедетти отбросили утверждение Аристотеля, что движение является above:

There was rebellion in medicine against the archaistic ideas of Galen and a rebirth in the study of anatomy and the importance of direct observation. The Renaissance began to utilize the classical ideas and forms again in the arts, following the cultural ideals of continuation with the ancient world. Over a period of a few short years Brunelleschi, Donatello and Masaccio carried out a revolutionary transformation of the conceptions of creative activity. Art was no longer a "mechanical activity", or a sort of handcraft, but a "liberalis", or rather, an intellectual exercise. This transition was confirmed by the publication of several theoretical works by Leon Battista Alberti: "De pictura" (1436) "De re aedificatoria" (1452) e "De statua" (1464). Art became an instrument of knowledge and research into reality; it was a real science based on rational theoretical foundations, like the rules of perspective. The key-concept of the "imitation of nature" was based on the contrast between classical and Byzantine traditions but should also be understood as the mathematical and geometrical organization of visual data within a given space. This artistic rebirth spread and developed, reaching the greatest heights of "Classicism" with Bramante, Michelangelo and Leonardo. The artists that followed Raphael and Michelangelo (who as a boy lived in Lorenzo the Magnificent's house and in the gardens of St. Mark) developed Mannerism into a nonconformist search for pure originality as a reaction to the anxiety that transpired behind the veils of Classicism.

метафизической величиной. В сфере математики итальянский алгебраист Кардано научился решать уравнение с тремя неизвестными, которое греки и арабы в те времена решать не умели, освободив вычисление от чисто догматических рассуждений. В медицине произошло восстание против архаичных идей Галена и возрождение изучения анатомии и важности прямого осмотра. Ренессанс начал вновь обращаться к классическим идеям и формам в искусстве, воссоед��няясь с культурными идеалами античного мира. Всего за несколько лет архитектор (Брунеллески), скульптор (Донателло) и художник (Мазаччо) произвели революционное перевоплощение во Флоренции принципов и функций творческой деятельности. Искусство перестало быть «механическим видом деятельности» или неким родом ремесленничества и превратилось в «свободное выражение» или, скорее, в интеллектуальное занятие. Этот переход был документирован несколькими опубликованными теоретическими трудами Леона Баттиста Альберти: «О живописи» (1436), посвященный Филиппо Бренеллески, «О зодчестве» (1452) и «О скульптуре» (1464). Искусство стало инструментом познания и поиска истины; оно превратилось в настоящую науку, основанную на рациональных теоретических принципах, таких, как правила перспективы. Ключевая концепция «имитации природы» основана на контрасте между классической и византийской школой, но могла также расцениваться и под углом математической и геометрической организации визуальных данных в заданном пространстве.

The Uffizi Gallery covers an area of about 8.000 square meters and contains one of the most important collections of art of all times, including classical sculpture and paintings on canvas and wood by 13th to 18th century Italian and foreign schools. The Gallery of the Uffizi was also the first museum ever to be opened to the public: in fact the Grand Duke granted permission to visit it on request from the year 1591. Its four centuries of history make the Uffizi Gallery the oldest museum in the world. Cosimo I de’ Medici decided to build the Palace, whose construction was started by Giorgio Vasari in 1560 and later completed by Buontalenti, who designed the famous Tribune, to house the administrative offices (or “uffizi”) of the Government because Palazzo Vecchio, which also overlooks Piazza della Signoria, had become too small to hold them all. However it was his son Francesco I who was responsible for starting to turn the palace into a museum in 1581, when he closed the second floor Gallery with huge windows and arranged part of the grand-ducal collection of classical statues, medals, jewellery, weapons, paintings and scientific instruments here. The Medici were untiring collectors and were forever adding to the Gallery: some of the most important elements to be added to the collection came from the inheritance left by Ferdinando II’s mother, Vittoria della Rovere (1631), together with the many acquisitions made by Cardinal Leopoldo de’ Medici (16171675), which were to create the basis of the

Gallery of Prints and Drawings (on the first floor of the Uffizi, on the site of the old Court Theatre built by Bernardo Buontalenti) and the collection of Self-portraits, exhibited today in the Vasari Corridor linking the Uffizi to the royal palace of Pitti. When Gian Gastone, the last Medici Grand Duke, died, his sister Anna Maria Ludovica managed to prevent the artistic patrimony from being scattered with the famous “Family Pact” (1737, and reconfirmed in her will of 1743), which, instead of bequeathing everything to the successors of the House of HapsburgLorraines, left the collections to the city of Florence itself “to be an ornament to the Government, useful to the public and to attract the curiosity of foreigners”. This document proved to be vitally important when the time came to retrieve the art works that had been removed and taken to Paris in Napoleonic times. Altered and rearranged several times over the centuries, according to the cultural tastes of the various periods, the exhibition rooms are now composed of over 45 rooms containing about 1.700 paintings, 300 sculptures, 46 tapestries and 14 pieces of furniture and/or ceramics. In actual fact the Uffizi owns about 4.800 works, the remainder of which are either in storage or on loan to other museums. The main collection includes great works by Giotto,

Уже сын Франциска I превратил здание в музей в 1581 году, когда закрыл галерею с огромными окнами на втором этаже и разместил там выставку великокняжеской коллекции античных статуй, медалей, ювелирных изделий, оружия, картин и научных приборов. Медичи были неутомимыми коллекционерами, каждый из них постоянно пополнял галерею ценными экспонатами. Когда Джан Гастоне, последний великий князь Медичией умер, его сестре Анне Марии Людовике удалось предотвратить утрату художественного наследия , подписав знаменитый "Семейный пакт" (1737 и также был подтвержден в ее завещании в 1743 году), который завещал Коллекцию городу Флоренция , “которая


Frilli Gallery Sculpture Art Studio in Florence Since 1860

S

ince 1860 Frilli Gallery is a manufacturer of handcarved marble and hand-chiselled bronze sculptures for interior and garden decoration. The Gallery presents a wide range of Greek, Roman, Classical, Renaissance, Art Nouveau and Contemporary statues. The top quality replicas produced are highly valued “lost wax” bronze castings from original molds or hand carved white Carrara marbles, alabasters and stones. During 150 years of activity, Frilli Gallery has become the name of reference for private collectors , hotels, i nterior designers, worldwide museums. Over the years Frilli Gallery pieces have been purchased by royal families, shown at international exhibitions . Throughout this time, the Frilli Gallery has remained true to its mission: to bring “authentic” replicas of pieces of classic and modern sculpture to contemporary residences, villas and parks. “Authentic” replicas may sound as a contradiction in itself. But not many people know that replicas were already popular in antiquity. Most of the classical pieces shown in museums today are actually replicas of lost originals that became even more popular in the Renaissance as Roman and Greek art was rediscovered. There are few private art galleries in the world that can still bring new emotions to the visitors. The Frilli Gallery in Florence is one of those. Masterful replicas to be touched, caressed probed freely with your own hand, fingers. This experience will not leave one unmoved.

1860-го года Галерея Фрилли является изготовителем произведений из инкрустированного мрамора и бронзовых статуй ручной работы для интерьера и садовых декораций. Галерея представляет широкий спектр статуй в греческом, римском, классическом стиле, в стиле эпохи Ренессанса, стиле «модерн» и современном стиле. Высококачественные копии, сделанные с применением техники «потерянного воска» из бронзового литься с использованием подлинных опалубок или выполненные вручную из белого каррарского мрамора, алебастрового камня и других каменных материалов. В течении 151 года деятельности Галерея Фрилли стала отправным пунктом для многих коллекционеров, отелей, дизайнеров интерьера, а также музеев всего мира. За эти годы произведения Галереи Фрилли заказывались королевскими династиями и выступали в качестве экспонатов на международных выставках. Миссия Галереи Фрилли заключается в том, чтобы украшать «подлинными» частицами классической и современной скульптуры нынешние резиденции, виллы и парки. «Подлинные» копии — звучит противоречиво на первый взгляд. Однако, немногие знают, что копии имели огромную популярность уже в древности. Большинство классических произведений, выставляемых на показ в музеях, на самом деле являются копиями утерянных подлинников, которые приобрели особое признание в эпоху Возрождения, когда имело место переосмысление канонов красоты древнегреческого и древнеримского искусства.

будет украшением правительства, будет полезна для общественности и для привлечения иностранцев." Основная коллекция включает в себя величайшие произведения Джотто, Мазаччо, Филиппо Липпи, Боттичелли, Леонардо да Винчи, Беллини, Джорджоне, Тициана, Микеланджело, Рафаэля, и почти всех великих итальянских художников до 18-го века. Основная коллекция остается оригинальной на протяжении веков. Работы в основном расположены в исторической последовательности. Перемещаясь из одного зала в другой можно наблюдать эволющию живописии от эпохи византии и средневековой до барокко.

Masaccio, Filippo Lippi, Botticelli, da Vinci, Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, Michelangelo, Raphael, and just about every great Italian artist through the 18th century. The core of the collection is from the Medici court. The collection has remained remarkably intact with few changes over the centuries. The works are mostly arranged in historical sequence. Moving from room to room you can see how painting evolved from Byzantine and medieval beginnings through the Baroque. In the early works, you can see the Byzantine influence in the use of line to suggest drapery and the heavy use of gold leaf. The artists of Siena soon begin to change this style by suggesting three-dimensional architecture even before the discovery of formal perspective. Soon the revolutionary Giotto appears on the scene depicting rounded solid figures that seem almost like Doric columns. The international Gothic style soon exerts its influence. The spatial depth is pushed back and the scenes crowded with multitudes of figures in colorful costumes. In spite of this, the overall trend in Italian art is towards the austere. The artists give the human figure a more sculptural appearance and the space is simplified and made more logical. Around 1424, the discovery of mathematical perspective causes yet another revolution in style as artists

for more and more realistic representations of figures in space. The 15th century ushers in the early Renaissance. Artists have new theories and improved materials. There is a great deal of experimentation with various stylistic elements. Two of the masterpieces of the Uffizi come from this period. The Birth of Venus and the Primavera by Botticelli make us marvel at the artistic mind that could conceive such fantastic compositions. The paintings are unbelievably rich in detail and must be seen in person to be appreciated. There are many examples of High Renaissance works in the collection. Among them is the Annunciation by Leonardo da VincI and the Holy Family by Michelangelo. These paintings are not only a synthesis of the styles and techniques that came before; they glow with the inspiration of a golden age. There are also excellent examples of Venetian art from the period, including two important paintings by Titian, The Venus of Urbino and Flora. Soon there was a movement towards the elongated figures of the Mannerist style as in the works of Tintoretto. And towards the end of the 16th century Caravaggio had a profound impact on the art world with his realism and intense use of shadow and light. These changes ushered in the Baroque period. The Uffizi collection includes many masters of this period from Northern Europe, including Van Dyck, Rubens and Rembrandt. Finally, the collection contains a number of 18th century works that show the artistic trend towards genre scenes and courtly life.

A. Ugolini e Figli A haute couture boutique whose excellence is well worth discovering, together with a friendly welcome from Dr. Niccolò Ugolini. The history of Ugolini and Sons dates from 1896, when Arturo, Niccolò’s great-grandfather, who was known to be somewhat a rebel and had travelled all over the world, opened the shop, starting a tradition that is still excellent even today. A history that managed to survive the Fascist period and the Florence flood: in fact, in 1938, the store fell under the evil eye of the Fascists who assaulted it and destroyed the beautiful English Art Nouveau lamps that characterised the columns outside with the blows of an axe; it was damaged again in the flood of 1966, after which the entrance was restored to its former splendour. Here, as always, the sophistication of Italian style is accompanied by refined English taste: in 1911 the Queen of England recognized it as the best shop across the Channel to represents the impeccable British style. Ugolini and Sons is an exceptional signature for a total look for men, offering a wide and top-level selection of goods. Its articles range from 1,450 shirts that come in all sizes and are finished with 25 stitches and mother-of-pearl buttons by the very best Italian manufacturers, to the roughly 600 ties on display, for the store was in fact the first to sell the Stefano Ricci ties as early as the 1970’s. The range continues with footwear (it has exclusive rights for Churchill), and some really beautiful articles in cashmere that come in many models and colours and are packed in exclusive Ugolini and Sons signed boxes, making them a splendid and precious gift of great effect. The product is for connoisseurs and the high performance workmanship used for the cashmere and silk is wonderful. Other special products available include the handmade silk boxer pants, hand finished with textile remnants from shirts made by important companies and presented in original signed cloth bags. Other quality articles are the English umbrellas by Swaine, Adeney Brigg or Burberry, all made by hand in fine materials like ash wood and silk, or the silver cufflinks, the best in English tradition and quality, together the greatest MADE-in- ITALY brands and all the best makes of sports wear (including Martina, Aeronautica Militare). Last, but not least, we must mention the suits, which are available in all the original manufacturing lines by the major designers (like Burberry, Tombolini and Brioni), but can also be made to measure.

Il Gufo For over 25 years Il Gufo has been dressing our children using natural fibres and carefully selected fabrics, choosing the most reliable Italian textile manufacturers, thereby ensuring top quality standards in terms of style, fit and safety. As the musical instruments of the orchestra express themselves in unison, creating a symphony, the new Il Gufo proposals for Spring Summer 2014 are combined in a collection that finds its strength in the harmony of colors. From the most ethereal and romantic, featuring splashes of watercolor on soft light fabrics to the casual and sporty, with large colored circles and big flowers in relief, in that inimitable way of blending modernity and elegance that has always characterized Il Gufo. The clever use of color is the result of research and testings. The deep marine blue shades crosses the clothes with decision melting with bluette, mixing together in absolute colors or drawing games of rows and squares. The range of green, acid, kiwi, apple and military encounters the shades of blue in the new Boy collection: cotton pullover, linen shirts and denim pants . For the Girl collection pink, strawberry and raspberry, plays with orange on dresses, voile blouses and skirts in sheer tulle . The white and the range of grays find their natural complement with the red and yellows to create bright combinations most suitable for children dressed as children.

A walk around

Santa Maria Novella Piazza Santa Maria Novella is dominated by the breathtaking facade of its Basilica, the masterpiece of Leon Battista Alberti (1456-70), though the lower part dates from the 14th century. Santa Maria Novella is chronologically the first of the great Florentine basilicas. Its name, “Novella�, comes from the fact that

it was built on the site of a 9th century oratory, called Santa Maria delle Vigne, which had already been enlarged in 1094. In 1221 this church and the surrounding area was assigned to the Dominican monks, who immediately began to transform it. Construction started on what were to be the sumptuous headquarters of the powerful Dominican Order in 1246; designed by two architect monks, Fra Sisto

На площади Санта Мария Новелла преобладает захватывающий фасад его базилики, шедевр Леон Баттиста Альберти (1456-70), нижняя часть которой датируется 14 веком. Санта Мария Новелла является хронологически первой из великих флорентийских базилик. Ее название, "Новелла", исходит из того, что он был построен на месте Оратории девятого века, которая называлась СантаМария делле Винь, которые уже были достроены в 1094 году. В 1221 г. этот храм и его окрестности перешли к Доминиканским монахам, которые сразу же начали трансформировать его. Строительство началось длясоздания роскошной штаб-квартиры для мощного доминиканского ордена в 1246 году, идеябыла разработана двумя архитекторами монахами, фра Систо Фиорентино и Фра Ристоро да Кампи, и было завершено в 1360 году под руководством Фра Якопо Таленти, который также спроектировал Испанскую часовню или главу дома (135055), монастырскую Трапезную (1353) и Великую Колокольню в романскомготическом стиле (1330). Разработка фасада инкрустированного черным и белым мрамором является настоящим шедевром: он был заложен в 1300 году и позже завершен Леон Баттиста Альберти в 1470, и, возможно, может счи

таться самой красивой из всех флорентийских церквей. Альберти гармонично интегрировал уже существующие элементы средневековья, развивая их по классическому дизайну, добавляя треугольные барабанные полости, а также создавая две красиво инкрустированные боковые спирали или свитки, чтобы скрыть наклон крыши, которая охватывает боковые нефы. Интерьер базилики построен на латинском кресте по линии цистерцианскогоготического стиля, который

and Fra Ristoro da Campi, it was completed in 1360 under the direction of Fra Iacopo Talenti, who also designed the Spanish Chapel or chapter house (1350-55), the convent Refectory (1353) and the great pointed belltower in RomanesqueGothic style (1330). The elaborate facade of inlaid black and white marble is a real masterpiece: it was started in 1300 and later completed by Leon Battista Alberti in 1470 and it can perhaps be considered to be the most beautiful of all the Florentine churches. Alberti harmoniously integrated the already existing mediaeval elements by developing them along a classical design, adding a triangular tympanum, as well as creating the two beautifully inlaid lateral volute or scrolls to hide the slope of the roof that covers the side naves. The interior of the Basilica is built on a Latin cross on the lines of the Cistercian-Gothic style which was

ported from France but modified by the Italian mendicant Orders (the Franciscans and the Dominicans), in order to make it easier to preach to large numbers of worshippers. The interior is therefore divided up into three naves (the centre nave is 100 metres long), without chapels, and develops into a much larger area around the apse, particularly noticeable from Piazza Stazione. The interior of Santa Maria Novella contains a series of works that bear the signatures of Giotto, Andrea Orcagna, Brunelleschi, Ghiberti, Benedetto da Maiano, Masaccio, Domenico Ghirlandaio and Filippino Lippi. From here you can visit the Green Cloisters (with frescoes illustrating the Old Testament by Paolo Uccello), the Spanish Chapel (altarpiece by Bernardo Daddi, murals by school of Allori), the Cloister of the Dead (murals from the circle of Maso and Nardo di Cione) and the Refectory (murals by Allori).Outside in the square, whose limits were established by decree in 1287, you can see the two obelisks set on turtles by Giambologna, once used as markers for chariot races. The Loggia of the old Hospital of S. Paolo dei Convalescenti (with glazed terracottas of Della Robbia school), stands right opposite the Basilica. The house with the tabernacle on the corner previously belonged to the Guild of Doctors. All that remains of the old Chapel of S. Nicola (1333) is at no. 16, Via della Scala, replaced in 1612 by the Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella.

Visconti Pininfarina Carbongrafite is a fountain pen with unique technical and stylistic qualities. Visconti experience and Know-how combined with Pininfarina creativity gave birth to an exceptional tool with strong innovative contents. Pininfarina Carbongrafite stands for purity of design and a clever mix of dynamism and elegance in the shapes, details that highlight the technical innovations designed by Visconti. It was in fact designed with a fully retractable stylus mechanic, finding innovative solutions for the housing of the ink tank, the leakage of the nib and especially for the closure system designed and patented by Visconti. Another masterpiece of the technique is the spring clip made ​​possible thanks to the miniaturization of components. Finally the use of unidirectional carbon graphite - used for the first time in the production of a pen - light and durable, creates a cross-reference with the Pininfarina world of cars giving a character of elegant sportiness to the pen. Pininfarina Carbongrafite is equipped with a case that recalls the same retractable mechanic as used in the pen and that turns into a real stage capable of enhancing the aesthetic qualities of the pen. Pininfarina Carbongrafite is available as a fountain pen with the Visconti Smartouch tubular nib in chrome 18 or as a roller and was produced in a limited edition of 930 fountain pens and 930 rollers thus celebrating the founding date of Pininfarina , 1930.

Santa Croce

the Franciscan Church

Although the origins of the first Franciscan oratory are still lost in the mists of time, the construction of the new Basilica of Santa Croce is well documented and was officially started on May 3rd 1294, when the architect, Arnolfo di Cambio, laid the first stone of what was to become a masterpiece of Gothic art. His design was based on spatial grandiosity, with the structural elements carried out with rational clarity and sobriety. It is built on the plan of an Egyptian cross (in the shape of a T), with the interior divided into three naves (114,45 metres), a chancel and a transept full of chapels whose patronage was reserved for the most illustrious families in this quarter of the city: the Bardi and Peruzzi families were the foremost, but there were also the Tosinghi, Pulci, Rinuccini and Alberti families...The walls of these chapels and the entire church were immediately covered in frescoes by Giotto and his school, who

the facade of Santa Croce with the statue of Dante Alighieri

Хотя происхождение первых францисканских ораторий все еще теряется в глубине веков, строительство новой базилики Санта-Кроче хорошо документировано и официально началась 3 мая 1294, когда архитектор Арнольфо ди Камбио, заложили первый камень в будущий шедевр готического искусства. Его дизайн был основан на пространственной грандиозности, со структурными элементами и осуществлялся с рациональной ясностью и трезвостью. Она была спланирована в виде египетского креста , с интерьером разделенным на три нефа, алтаря и трансепта - часовни которая была зарезервирована для самых выдающихся семей этого квартала города: Барди, Перуцци, Тосиньи, Альберти и других.

школы, которые превратили базилику в музей живописи флорентийского искусства Возрождения . Теми же художниками были разработаны прекрасные светящиеся витражи. Новые архитектурные дополнения были внесены благодаря покровительству Козимо Медичи и Андреа де Пацци. Бывшая часовня послушников построена рядом с Ризницей Микелоццо и украшена и расписана Андреа делла Роббиа и Мино да Фьезоле, последним спонсором часовни Пацци,

turned the basilica into a museum of Florentine Trecento painting. The same artists also designed the wonderful luminous stained glass windows. When at last the church was finished in 1442, it was consacrated by Pope Eugene IV. The facade was left undecorated, in fact it was not completed until 1857-63, more or less at the same time as the Belltower was rebuilt to replace the original one which had been struck by lightning. New architectural additions were introduced thanks to the patronage of Cosimo “the Elder” de’ Medici and Andrea de’ Pazzi. The former had the Chapel of the Novitiate built next to the Sacristy in 1434-45 by Michelozzo and decorated by Andrea della Robbia and Mino da Fiesole; the latter sponsored the Pazzi Chapel, in the first cloister or Cloister of the Dead, designed by Filippo Brunelleschi and started in around 1430. Brunelleschi also designed the second Cloister of the Convent, or Greater Cloister, continued after his death by Bernardo Rossellino (1453 circa) with a fine entrance door (1450 circa) by Benedetto da Maiano. The Basilica also contains numerous examples of typically Renaissance sculpture. The most famous of these is the Crucifix by Donatello (1425, Bardi Chapel in the left transept) and his aristocratic Annunciation in grey stone with gilded highlights (1430-35), recently restored by the Opificio delle Pietre Dure. Nor should we forget the Pulpit by Benedetto da Maiano (1472-80) or the Madonna of Milk by Antonio Rossellino (1478), placed above the tomb of Francesco Nori, prior of the Republic and who died saving Lorenzo the Magnificent’s life at

The former, dedicated to Leonardo Bruni (1369-1444), humanist and Chancellor of the Republic, is considered a prototype among Renaissance tomb monuments. The presence of a great many funeral monuments and tombstones (276 can still be seen on the floor alone) has led to the Basilca being thought of as the city Pantheon, the burial place of Florence’s most illustrious citizens. Somewhere here lie the tombs of Taddeo Gaddi and Count Ugolino della Gherardesca. Other famous inmates include Michelangelo (tomb by Vasari, 1570), Galileo Galilei (tomb by Foggini, 1737), Vittorio Alfieri (tomb by Canova, 1810). Unfortunately the monument to Dante, whose remains repose at Ravenna, is only a cenotaph (S. Ricci, 1829). The poet Ugo Foscolo described the church and its Tombs of the famous in his “Sepolcri”. Other tombs can be found in the first cloister, beneath the loggia attached to the church (the oldest), and in an undergound corridor. The latter form a complete range of Neoclassical and Romantic sculpture. The Cloister, which also contains the entrance to the Museum, can be reached directly from the square.

Since the fifties the orchestra conductor FRANCESCO MOLINARI PRADELLI has cultivated a growing passion for art collecting paintings, driven by an original attraction to baroque painting and the genre of still life whose studies, then, were at the beginning. As the exhibition documents through a selection of one hundred paintings, the master gave priority strictly to seventeenth and eighteenth century paintings documenting the various Italian schools with a specific attention to sketches. To give the collection a very early international reputation, however, were the many still life by artists such as Jacopo da Empoli, Luca Forte, Giuseppe Recco, Cristoforo Munari, Arcangelo Resani, Carlo Magini, a sign of an out of the ordinary insight that made of Molinari Pradelli a true connoisseur of Italian baroque painting and the forerunner of the modern still life studies. from february 11th. A partire dagli anni Cinquanta il maestro d'orchestra FRANCESCO MOLINARI PRADELLI ha coltivato una crescente passione per la pittura rivolgendosi principalmente al barocco spinto da un’attrazione del tutto originale verso il genere della natura morta i cui studi erano allora alle origini. Come la mostra documenta attraverso la selezione di cento dipinti, il maestro privilegiò rigorosamente la pittura del Seicento e del Settecento documentando le diverse scuole italiane, senza eccezione, con specifica attenzione ai bozzetti e ai modelletti. A conferire alla collezione, molto precocemente, una notorietà internazionale furono tuttavia i numerosi dipinti di natura morta di artisti come Jacopo da Empoli, Luca Forte, Giuseppe Recco, Cristoforo Munari, Arcangelo Resani, Carlo Magini, segno di un intuito fuori dal comune che fece del noto direttore d’orchestra un autentico conoscitore della pittura barocca italiana, antesignano dei moderni studi sulla natura morta. dal 11 febbraio

The exhibition starts from the consideration that among the most challenging aspects of the work inside a museum there is the familiarity with the works, which this year are shown on both sides, discovering a whole new history of assemblies, identifications of authors, artists' thoughts and notes. Paintings (David, Dürer, Brueghel, Palma il Vecchio), sculptures, pottery, even a trunk to be transformed into an altar for the Court trips, a 'royal' cabinet embellished with Meissen porcelain, lyrics and dedications, old lists and sealing wax, from the Roman times to contemporary art. All these clues lead to an ideal artist's studio in the special moment of the conception of the work of Art, when, inverting a canvas, it was decided to give a new life to the opera, a life of which we spare memory in the many self-portraits verso. until february 2nd. La mostra parte dalla considerazione che tra gli aspetti più stimolanti del lavoro al museo c’è la confidenza con le opere, di cui quest’anno vengono presentati i due lati, che raccontano assemblaggi, identificazioni di autori, pensieri e note d'artista. Dipinti (David, Dürer, Brueghel, Palma il Vecchio), sculture, maioliche, anche un baule da trasformare in altare nei viaggi di Corte, uno stipo ‘regale’ impreziosito da porcellane di Meissen, liriche e dediche, antichi numeri inventariali e ceralacche, dall’arte romana a quella contemporanea. Conducono a un ideale atelier d'artista, al momento del concepimento dell'opera, quando, capovolgendo una tela, fu deciso di dar volto a una nuova avventura, di cui serba memoria anche il verso di molti autoritratti, fino ai più recenti entrati in collezione. fino al 2 febbraio

A new homeland of the spirit This exhibition investigates the special attraction of the city of Florence for many artists from Venice and the Friuli Venezia Giulia region in the early decades of the twentieth century, when the Tuscan capital in many respects represented the most complete, and not only literary and figurative, synthesis of Italian culture. It shows Florence’s central role even with respect to the revival of engraving in Italy at the beginning of the last century, the so-called art of “Black and White”, which received new impetus at that time thanks to many of these artists. The city experienced the exciting growth of the historical journals of the start of the century by welcoming a group of intellectuals from the northern regions of the country that were still under Austrian rule, who converged there following the call of a common “Italian” culture. The works on paper on view reveal how these artists were remarkably able to synthesize, within the confined dimensions of the plate or sheet, the themes of the portrait, figure or landscape. UNTIL fenruary 9th Un progetto che indaga la speciale attrazione esercitata dalla città di Firenze su molti artisti veneti, friulani e giuliani nei primi decenni del Novecento, quando il capoluogo toscano rappresentò per molti aspetti la sintesi più compiuta della cultura italiana, e non solo figurativa e letteraria. Ne emerge il ruolo centrale di Firenze anche rispetto alle vicende del recupero dell’incisione in Italia all’inizio del secolo scorso, quell’arte del “Bianco e Nero” che proprio allora andava ricevendo nuovo impulso grazie anche a molti di questi artisti. La città viveva la stimolante fioritura delle riviste storiche d’inizio secolo accogliendo un gruppo di intellettuali che dalle regioni non ancora “redente” vi convergevano seguendo il richiamo di una comune cultura “italiana”. Il percorso muove attraverso 66 opere su carta, tra disegni e stampe, che rivelano come nella dimensione intima della lastra o del foglio questi artisti abbiano saputo sintetizzare in maniera mirabile i temi del ritratto, della figura e del paesaggio.

After admiring the view along the Arno from Ponte Santa Trinita, originally built in 1252 by a member of the Frescobaldi family and now a stone built reconstruction of Ammannati’s bridge (1567-70), destroyed in 1944, decorated with its ancient statues of Spring and Summer, at the Piazza S. Trinita's end, Autumn and Winter, on the south bank, make your way back along Via Maggio towards Piazza S. Felice. Walking down Via Maggio you will immmediately notice how wide it is compared to many streets of the centre. Originally called Via Maggiore, it was one of Florence’s principal medieval thoroughfares and used for official processions. Many of Florence’s aristocratic families owned houses in this street, among them, Bianca Cappello, mistress and later wife of Francesco I, who lived at n. 24-6. The palace originally belonged to the Corbinelli family and was restructured between 1570 and 1574 by Bernardo Buontalenti, who lived at n. 37. Another fine house is Palazzo Ricasoli-Firidolfi, built in the early 16th century in the manner of Baccio d’Agnolo, and boasting a beautiful internal courtyard in the style of Cronaca.

ОЛЬТРАРНО И САНТО СПИРИТО После того как вы насладились видом на Арно с моста Санта Тринита, пройдитесь по вия Маджо к пьяцца Сан Феличе . Вия Маджо, которая вначале называлась вия Маджоре была одной из основных улиц средневековой Флоренции и использовалась для главных официальных парадов. Многие дворянские семьи Флоренции имели дворцы на этой улице, знаменитой своими магазинами антиквариата, которые стоит посетить по пути. Дойдя до живописной площади Сан Феличе, можно лицезреть церковь Сан Феличе с фасадом Микелоццо (1457), одну из древнейших цервей

по эту сторону реки. Центр площади обозначен мраморной колонной , поставленной по приказу Козимо I . Следуйте дальше по вия Маццетта вдоль церкви к живописной площади Санто Спирито. Возрожденческий Палаццо Гуаданьи, построенный для семьи Деи в начале 1500 Кронака, вы увидите на углу между вия Мацетта и площади. Площадь Санто Спирито окружена дворцами с XV века и заканчивается прекрасным садом с центральным фонтаном. На этой площади вы можете почувствовать настоящую атмосферу богемы, между кафе, ресторанов и рыночком , который устраивают каждое утро. Можно сказать что это одно из самых популярных мест города. Церковь Санто Спирито находится в глубине площади. Ее простой отштукатуреный фасад является наиболее выразительным

Apart from the many fine houses in this street, it is also famous for its antique shops which are well worth investigating en route. It connects with Piazza Pitti by several narrow, but fascinating streets which hide more shops and several craft laboratories. Once in the pictoresque Piazza San Felice you can admire On the left the Church of San Felice with the facade by Michelozzo (1457); it is one of the oldest churches on this side of the Arno. Casa Guidi on the other side of the street, is where the poetess Elizabeth Barrett Browning lived with her husband Robert and later died, recorded by an epitaph over the door. The centre of the square is marked by a marble column, set up on the orders of Cosimo I. Now turn off into Via Mazzetta, which runs along one side of the church and leads into picturesque Piazza Santo Spirito. Renaissance Palazzo Guadagni, built for the Dei family in the early 1500’s, probably by Cronaca, stands on the corner between Via Mazzetta and the square. Piazza Santo Spirito is surrounded by 15th century palaces and com-

pleted by a pretty garden with a fountain in the centre. Sit down for a breather here at one of the open-air cafè’s or restaurants and enjoy the popular and rather bohemian atmoshere of the square. It is always a hive of activity, due partly to the area market which is held here every morning, but also to the fact that many Florentines still live and work here and it has not, as yet, been taken over by offices. The Church of Santo Spirito stands at the far end of the square. One would never guess, from its plain plastered façade, that it is one of the purest expressions of Renaissance architecture. It was designed and started between 1428 and 1444 by the great architect Filippo Brunelleschi, two years before his death, and completed by his students, Antonio Manetti and Salvi D’Andrea.

The starkly imposing facade with its characteristic ‘orillons’ and elegant bell tower (Baccio d’Agnolo), closes off one end of the square. The three naves in the interior, on a Latin cross, are divided by elegant Corinthian columns, the chapels around the perimeter creating the typical chiaroscuro effect of Brunelleschi’s late style. The large cupola rises at the crossing between the transept and the main aisle. The interior contains works by Passignano, Filippino Lippi, Bernardo Rossellino, F. Botticini, C. Roselli, F. Granacci, Fra Bartolomeo, the Ghirlandaio family, and Cronaca. The octagonal Sacristy, designed by Giuliano da Sangallo and Simone del Pollaiolo, known as Cronaca, contains the ‘Crucifix’ in wood, a youthful work by Michelangelo. Stop off to visit the Museum and the splendid Last Supper by Andrea Orcagna at n. 29 (entrance at the side of the church). Now is a good time to explore the narrow streets around the square. Here dozens of workshops still use traditional methods and tools to ply their trades, crafts that elsewhere have died out, disappeared or become completely industrialised. Artisans like cobblers and shoemakers, jewellers, gold and silversmiths, antiquarians, restorers, workers in iron and other metals, upholsterers, embroiderers, picture framers, artists, bronze workers, tailors and costume makers, to name just a few, carry on the traditional crafts that have been passed down from father to son for centuries. Therefore, apart from souvenir hunting, the curious visitor can have the unique experience of watching objects being created just as they were in the past, another fascinating momento of his stay in Florence.

Tuscan Cuisine

Plain, simple and basic

Plain, simple and basic, the Tuscan cuisine needs little elaboration to be able to conquer new admirers. The care given to the quality of the basic ingredients is an essential part of Tuscan cultural traditions, still closely linked to country cooking and genuine products. You only need taste a slice of Tuscan bread soaked in olive oil to appreciate the essence of this cuisine. The locally produced extra-virgin oil is in fact of exceptional quality, wonderful whether cooked or raw, and accompanies almost all the most characteristic recipes in the region. A Tuscan style lunch starts with a meaty appetiser based on cold cuts (including savoury salted ham), and croutons, slices of toast spread with a paté made with chicken livers, spleen of veal, capers and butter. Traditional first courses include simple but delicious vegetable soups like the ‘pappa col pomodoro’, made with tomato, garlic, basil and pepper, or the ‘ribollita’, made with vegetables cooked for hours, the flavour brought out by a last minute topping of oil. Pappardelle (ribbon pasta) served with a hare sauce made with red wine, oil and tomato, is just one of the typical pasta dishes. The world famous Florentine steak, a special cut of prized Chianina beef, is a symbolic second course, though we should also include characteristic Tuscan tripe, flavoured with bacon, tomato and Parmesan. The most popular legumes are beans, cultivated here from Etruscan times and either cooked ‘all’uccelletto’ (in tomato sauce with sage) or in a wine flask. Like the soups, vegetables are almost always tossed in a frying pan with oil and garlic - spinach, artichokes, baby marrows - or fried, like, for example, the crunchy marrow flowers. Typical dishes in the summer months are the ‘pinzimonio’ or sliced fresh vegetable dip of oil, vinegar, salt and pepper, or classic fresh field salads.

Кухня Тосканы

Натуральная, простая и непосредственная кухня Тосканы нуждается в минимуме усилий, чтобы завоевать себе новых поклонников. Забота, которая уделяется отбору продуктов является основной характеристикой тосканских культурных традиций, которые до сих пор тесно связаны с деревенской манерой готовить и с продуктами, выращенными натуральными методами. Вам будет достаточно попробовать только ломтик тосканского хлеба с каплей оливкового масла, чтобы оценить сущность этой кухни. Обед в тосканском стиле начинается с мясных закусок, основанных на холодных нарезках и гренки, ломтики поджаренного на гриле хлеба с паштетом из куриной печенки, телячьей селезенки, каперсов и сливочного масла. Традиционные первые блюда включают в себя простой, но вкусный овощной суп, называемый «паппа аль помодоро», который приготавливается из помидоров, чеснока, базилика и перца, или «риболлита», который делается из вареных длительное время овощей, аромат которым придает добавка в последнюю минуту сырого оливкового масла. Паппарделле заправляемая соусом из зайца в красном вине, масла и томатов, — лишь одно из типичных блюд из пасты. Известный во всем мире флорентийский бифштекс из особой части ценной говядины сорта Кьянина является символическим вторым блюдом, куда мы можем добавить характерное тосканское блюдо из рубца, заправленное копченной грудинкой, томатами и пармезаном.

Lungarno Bistrot

Бистро на Лунгарно В изумительном обрамлении набережной реки Арно, так называемого Лунгарно Гуиччардини, открылся новый ресторан «LUNGARNO BISTROT», с роскошной внешней верандой, сидя на которой можно любоваться великолепным видом набережной и фасадом дворца князей Корсини. У входа располагается барная стойка для заказа аперитивов или дижестивов, но настоящим центром притяжения заведения является его огромная открытая кухня, которая позволяет наблюдать за процессом приготовления фирменных блюд и домашней лапши. Использование продуктов местного или строго итальянского происхождения высшего качества отличает блюда, приготовленные руками наших шеф-поваров. В меню можно найти типичные блюда тосканской кухни, а также блюда, созданные фантазией наших мастеров (такие, как мусс из мяса трески, картофельная запеканка с лососем). Десерты тоже все выполнены в домашних условиях. На сладкое можно заказать: тирамису, mille-feuille со взбитыми сливками, яблочный пирог «Татен», шоколадное суфле и широкий ассортимент печень

The “LUNGARNO BISTROT” restaurant has just opened in a splendid setting on the Lungarno Guicciardini, right opposite historic Palazzo Corsini, and, with its large outside veranda, gives onto a beautiful view of the Arno. The lounge bar can be found in the entrance hall and is perfect for aperitifs and after dinner drinks, though the highlight of the restaurant is its large open-plan kitchen, where you can watch the chefs prepare all the dishes and home made pasta (it is one of the few restaurants in the city centre where the pasta is home produced as well as bread and desserts by the chefs). The first course includes pici, gnocchi, ricotta and spinach ravioli, stuffed tortelli, tagliolini and tagliatelle, as well as special dishes every day with products of the season! Fresh products make up the principal raw materials for our cuisine. All the various dishes are characterised by carefully selected products, all of top quality, while our chefs’ love of simple and genuine cooking can be seen with the many plants of fresh herbs growing on the small balcony off the kitchen. The menu includes typical dishes of Tuscan tradition (Florentine T-bone steak, just to give an example), as well as other platters creatively prepared by our chefs (like mousse of cod or potato and salmon quiche). The dessert course is also most important as it provides the perfect ending to any special meal. All the desserts are made right here in the kitchen and include tiramisu (made on order), mille-feuille with chantilly whipped cream, upside down apple tart, chocolate soufflé and a wide variety of fancy biscuits.

Cucina Torcicoda

Ресторан «Cucina Torcicoda» Большое патио овальной формы на Виа Торта ограничивает площадь, ранее занимаемую древнеримским амфитеатром, в период между 124 и 130-ым годом до нашей эры, а огибающая ее изогнутая дорога была прозвана Виа Торчикода (улица Изогнутого Хвоста). Ресторан «Cucina Torcicoda» родился здесь: огромная обновленная площадь, расположенная на более, чем тысяче квадратных метров с тремя различными залами, у каждого из которых свое оформление, своя атмосфера и меню, которые всегда отличаются высоким качеством, традициями и изысканностью. Ресторан основывается и специализируется на блюдах средиземноморской и тосканской кухни. Деревянные столы и неформальная атмосфера являются наиболее характерными чертами таверны. Последняя по счету, но не по качеству — пиццерия, в которой можно попробовать пиццы, приготовленные в настоящей печи на дровах.

Florian

Флориан Старинное Кафе Флориан, основанное в 1720-ом году на площади Сан-Марко в Венеции, сейчас нашло свой уголок во Флоренции, где открыло новый филиал с эксклюзивным кафетерием и новаторским рестораном, посвященными современному искусству. Элитная атмосфера и безупречный сервис выгодно отличают классический кафетерий и ресторан с традиционными блюдами венецианской и итальянской кухни. Шеф-повар черпает свое вдохновение в классических постных блюдах, известных десертах и венецианском мягком мороженом. Каждый вечер с 18-ти часов сервируется венецианский аперитив с традиционным коктейлем Сприц, Беллини или Негрони, в сопровождении вяленой трески, приготовленной в собственном соку либо в томатном соусе, мясного и сырного ассорти по-венециански, подаваемого с конфитюрами домашнего приготовления, а также прочими закусками, которые можно брать прямо руками

Historic Caffè Florian, founded in 1720 in Piazza S. Marco in Venice, has now found its natural outlet in Florence with the opening of this new and exclusive location, where a prestigious café and innovative catering blend together with Contemporary Art. The Florian Art Collection has organised a permanent display of works by Mimmo Rotella, Fabrizio Plessi, Gaetano Pesce and Bruno Ceccobelli, to mention just a few of the many artists who have created exclusive works for the Florian in Venice over the years. These art works are now here in Florence to pay tribute to the tradition in style, elegance and refinement that has made Florian a myth-like place throughout the world. Here clients can find a truly exclusive environment and an impeccable service in the classical Café and in the Restaurant, specialised in Venetian and Italian cuisine. Inspired by the classical light dishes and traditional desserts and parfaits, the Chef offers some really superlative platters created with top quality raw materials. The recipes are in fact all based on the finest Italian products and include really fresh fish, meat, first courses and starters, as well as the typical Venetian savoury croutons. The idea is to maintain all the flavour and natural taste of the best ingredients of the season and thus create excellent but traditional dishes that are however continuously renewed, with the addition of special touches that are both original and cosmopolitan. It is possible to enjoy an aperitif (spritz, delicious cocktails, special wines), a really good coffee, chocolate, the traditional and elegant afternoon tea, snacks, Venetian savoury croutons and exquisite pastries, all signed by Florian at any time of the day. Do not miss the special Venetian aperitif, every evening after 6pm, where you can enjoy faithful reproductions of the original Florian recipes for Spritz, Bellini and Negroni, accompanied by traditional salted cod, cod stew, a selection of Venetian dressed meats and cheeses served with home made jams prepared by the Chef and various types of fingerfood.
