  • It's a really cute art shop!
  • A small shop for local crafts (leather, paper and wood objects are almost all handmade by the owner's family). A feast for the senses, to visit at least once, surely you will take home something.

  • A small shop to go back in time. Here comes to life the Florentine craftsmanship of the past, small wonders handcrafted leather, wood and paper. In honor of the Ciompi, Guild of craftsmen who in 300 made their entry in restoring luster to their work.
