More than any other Italian city, Florence has always maintained a strong bond between the inhabitants and its quality artisanal production, the relationship that probably resides in the refined aesthetic taste for the beauty of this elegant city, and that goes well back in time, to the era of the guilds of the arts and crafts and the Renaissance. No wonder the headquarters of leading Italian chauffeur service company Deluxe Limo Italy is located here. Luxury car service in Florence is where the elegance meets the comfort. And let’s be clear: it is not a coincidence that the great designers and art masters, particularly in the fashion industry, leather goods, bags and shoes production like Gucci, Pucci, Roberto Cavalli, Salvatore Ferragamo, Patrizia Pepe and Enrico Coveri (and then there I would also add manufacturing companies like the Alinari brothers, Galileo, Richard Ginori and many others) who have VIP clients from all over the world, from actors and singers to the countries’ leaders and royal families’ members, all speak the language of Dante and Boccaccio. Maybe the shows take place in Milan or Rome, better prepared in terms of marketing and media, but ideas and production are born in the city of the lily, Florence.
And in the field of quality shopping and craftsmanship, the Tuscan capital has recently invented a cute and smart initiative, with the eloquent title “In Florence I go shopping”, to transform the stay of many guests of the city , Italians and foreigners, in a truly unique experience, one of those that you will remember forever. In fact, every Wednesday morning the guests of a few historical 4-star hotels on request, are provided a free tour conducted by expert and specialized guides to the workshops where the visitors can also purchase artistic handicraft products of high quality. It’s about going to find shops and back shops hidden in the secret alleys of the historic center, where there are still artists who dedicate their life – perhaps for generations – to the wood inlaying, linen embroidery, jewelry, ceramics, glass and terracotta production, silverware and framers restoration, bookbinding, for a total of over 60 secret and precious locations. Obviously the tour program changes every time, depending on the number of participants and their specific interests.
The initiative was started under the patronship of the Congress Center at the Duomo of Florence, the Association of traditional and typical Florentine historical exercises, Life Beyond Tourism and the Observatory of the Masters of Art. The Congress Center is already known as a harbinger of the original initiatives which purpose is the enhancement of the territory, such as the creation of the Map to discover off-the-beaten track and alternative tourist routes, as well as the financial support to the Uffizi for the restoration of damaged works of art. The lucky guests interested in this initiative are the customers of two 4-star hotels located in the city center. This is a really unique opportunity that allows participants to experience the city as locals, not tourists.
