My best friend came to spend last week with me, so I planned lots of outings for us. We went to the Corsini Gardens Artigianato & Palazzo. A beautiful garden with shopping from local artisans.
The next day, we hired a car and driver to take us to Greve in Chianti. It has a very famous place Macelleria Falorni, where we made a fast purchase of prosciutto and cheese. Then we went to a darling linens shop and bought some tea towels to bring home as gifts, and a clothing shop with all white pieces.
Because so many of the artisans have their workshops outside of Florence, I am thinking about having an artisan aperitivo here at my apartment. Would include the silversmith’s wares, ceramics and maybe handbags from Fabio. Sort of a Tupperware party meets Tuscan artisan work. Think it would be a really fun!
