Piazza Santa Croce is an excellent example of a quintessential 'Renaissance square', where perfect and impressive architectural geometry has been designed around the life of the community and its citizens.

The recipes of ” Giglio Cooking School”: The Meat Sauce

Many cooks say that for a good ragu’ different kinds of meat are required: beef, pork, lamb, veal. Purists say that only beef meat is required. I don’t dislike to mix a crumbled good fresh and rather lean sausage with the ground beef. Meat sauce – or ragù – is made with different meats all over Italy: in the south, especially Apulia, there is a predilection for lamb. In Napoli the meat is not ground: they rather use a whole piece of beef to stew for six or seven hours. What seems to be in common is the use of tomato. Not everybody knows that the tomato is a recent addition to Italian recipes, being original from America....Marcella Ansaldo invite you to visit her web site: www.gigliocooking.com or to contact her at info@gigliocooking.com

Districts of Florence – ” Sant’ Ambrogio”

Sant'Ambrogio is definitely one of the most liveable neighborhoods in the city. From this district it's only a ten-minute walk to all the major monuments, squares and museums of the city. And yet, due to its location just outside of the most heavily-touristed areas - it hasn't been overrun by mass tourism.Along the streets of Sant'Ambrogio it's still possible to meet many 'real Florentines' - walking, shopping or simply chatting on the stairs of a church, on a park bench, in a market, or amidst the narrow streets. Almost all of the area's streets are closed to traffic and this makes the district even more attractive for both tourists and residents. One of the most representative monuments of the district is the beautiful synagogue located in Via Farini, built in 1882 by Florence's Jewish community. Also interesting is the simple and harmonious Sant'Ambrogio Church, located in the most lively square and representing the heart of the district.
