Florence: The city of Arts

“Florence is like a box of chocolate, you never know what you’re gonna get” – that’s how I would rephrase the famous saying from Forrest Gump. This city shocks by its art works in every corner, in the most unexpected places.

Florence is the Renaissance. It makes you rethink and redefine your values. Florence makes you breath the beauty, feel the power of Art, and eliminate the limits of your imagination. This city makes you say phrases like “Wow, is this real?”, “I can’t believe my eyes!”, “This is just unbelievable!”.

Isn’t it a miracle when you walk in the street and literally feel like in the middle ages? As if you see people with shabby cloths sitting there to have a rest, horses passing the streets, the light of candles, rich ladies laughing together and greedily buying jewelry in Ponte Vecchio. Yes, Florence completely redefines your imagination.

Florence is the David. He’s independent and strong, he’s humble and breathtakingly beautiful. Florence is noble, his soul is free, his thoughts are deep, his spirit is strong. And he has an unbelievable power to transform his visitors.

Here I tried to photograph this unphotographable city.

  1. Florence is one of my fave cities in Italy and probably the world. I’ve been lucky enough to visit twice. There’s something about standing up high and looking down on all the terracotta coloured roofs. Love your photos here and your words are dreamy as well.

  2. Love Florence. Was there 3 years ago and your pictures brought back memories of a truly beautiful city. It is difficult to photograph and you did a great job capturing the essence of the city. Thanks for bringing back such beautiful memories!
