Districts of Florence – ” SS Annunziata”

At the heart of this district lies the magnificent Piazza Santissima Annunziata, a beautiful space dominated by the presence of the elegant SS.Annunziata Church. This church originally stood outside the second circle of city walls. Between 1444 and 1481 Michelozzo, Pagno Portinari and Antonio Manetti (with suggestions from the architect Alberti) remodelled it into its present form.The facade has a portico that rests on Corinthian columns and the central portal leads to the Chiostrino dei Voti (1447), a scenic space with lunettes frescoed by Pontormo, Rosso Fiorentino, and Andrea del Sarto (1511-1513). Also to be admired is Volterrano's magnificent coffered ceiling (1664)... What we're saying is, if you live in this district you can't miss a visit to this church (come on, we're not asking you to go to Sunday morning mass!...)

Mollusks Soups

My mother was pregnant with me the day her father took her to visit the kitchen of the cargo ship where he was working as the crew cook.They went down the narrow stairs to get to the underwater level kitchen.My mother, being a weak-stomach person, got immediately sick with the smell of paint, petrol, salt, moisture and fried onions that characterizes the belly of cargo ships. She didn't say anything, but the pale colour of her cheeks spoke for her.She resisted, more because of her innate curiosity than of the willingness to not upset her father. So they entered the small room that my grandfather used to keep clean, tidy and rich with the wonderful pans of food he was able to create with the little money budgeted for the crew.

Districts of Florence – ” San Lorenzo “

San Lorenzo, for the Florentines is synonymous with 'market'. The biggest open market of the city is, in fact, located here. In the colourful and noisy San Lorenzo market it's possible to find a wide choice of leather jacket and bags, jeans, t-shirts, shoes…everything of reasonably good quality and at reasonable prices.Even if you don't plan to spend hours shopping we suggest that to visit the market all the same, just to enjoy browsing. Naturally, watch out for pickpockets here.
