IL DOLCE FAR NIENTE (FLORENCE, ITALY)

National Geographic describes Florence as “A city-size shrine to the Renaissance, Florence offers frescoes, sculptures, churches, palaces, and other monuments from the richest cultural flowering the world has known.”

We are lucky enough to visit Florence each year as part of our attendance of the Pitti Uomo menswear shows; and it’s been a love affair from the start.  

Unashamed, we are bias to all that is Italy – we pride ourselves on having our Ateliers in the Tuscan region and promote it wherever we can as part of our DNA and business existence.    

Florence is considered to be the artistic, historical, and cultural capital of not only Tuscany, but of all Italy.

We love the cafes, the markets, the food and the physical elegance of the city that makes us want to delve deeper into its every street.   An elegance that coexists beautifully with the il dolce far niente (the sweetness of doing nothing) lifestyle of the Florentines that can be found in everything from mealtimes to doing what you love.

FLORENCE_BRIDGES

Among the four old bridges that span the river, the Ponte Vecchio, that bridge which is covered with the shops of jewelers and goldsmiths, is a most enchanting feature in the scene. The space of one house, in the center, being left open, the view beyond, is shown as in a frame; and that precious glimpse of sky, and water, and rich buildings, shining so quietly among the huddled roofs and gables on the bridge, is exquisite“. – Charles Dickens
