VOICES OF THE VILLAGE

Articles from citizens, students, tourists in love with Florence…

We all are in shock for the result of the British referendum... Watch the video (realized by the theflorentine.net team) to find out what the British expats in Florence feel about the Brexit:
Summer is officially over here in Firenze and I’ve just realized that September has gone away so fast. I’ve always believed that this month is like the “Monday of the year”, as I’m always full of good intentions and resolutions. But this extended summer made me forget about that and now I incredibly found out that it’s already “Tuesday” (for me and all people for whom the correspondence September-Monday make any sense).

Whether you’ve been studying Italian for years, or are currently mastering the art of “my name is,” these 10 expressions are an essential addition to any vocabulary. You won’t find them in Italian books, but you’ll hear them all over the streets. Understanding them will give you a huge boost in comprehension. Using them will make you much more fun to talk to.
Mercatino Natale Firenze
There's always the Ponte Vecchio, the David, and the Duomo, but these 10 tidbits are best enjoyed or only available when it's cold outside.1. Hot Chocolate I know. Hot Chocolate. What a cool, new thing you've never tried before, right? WRONG. First of all, if you've never been to Italy, you probably think hot chocolate is a liquid. But in this ingenious country, it's not. What Italians call hot chocolate (you know, besides "cioccolato caldo") is a thick, velvety rich drink that's almost a pudding but not quite. It's served with a spoon, so, you decide. For the absolute best hot chocolate in Florence, cross the Arno and find your way to "Hemingway." Their menu includes creations from the world champion of artistic chocolate-making. A valid reason for the café being a little pricey? I'd say so. Savor a creamy, white hot chocolate with ginger, and try not to feel bad for those silly people who come to Florence in the summer.Hemingway Piazza Piattellina, 9 50124 Florence, Italy Hours: Mon to Thu 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m., Fri and Sat 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., Sun 2 p.m. to 1 a.m.
