If you're looking to experience Florence's artisan and antiques scene, then Oltrarno is perfect for you; here you can find hand crafted goods at favourable prices. As part of the experience, in many of the craft shops you can watch artisans at work and become acquainted, first hand, with their professionalism whilst gaining insight into the quality of their craftsmanship.
An antiquarian gallery, a craft shop, an interior design boutique and an architecture studio: a real cabinet of curiosities right in the heart of San Frediano. Here you will lose yourself in a world of tapestries, art deco seats, nineteenth-century busts, precious lamps, fabrics and wallpapers of the highest quality. The architect Duccio Conti Caponi will welcome you at Casa Wolf with his great passion. It's a real gem!
This gallery is located in via di Santo Spirito and hosts engraved wood, small angels, lion heads, friezes, furniture, frames and mirrors, all of which are hand-carved in a traditional Tuscan style. It’s a magical and incredible world of wood where architects and interior designers gather from all over the globe. Castorina also specialises in refurbishment projects: because Florence's beauty is infinite.
It's not often you get to visit a place like this: this plaster cast museum is simply breathtaking. It is housed in a former church which dates by to the '600s and is run, with great dedication and passion, by the fourth heir of the Romanelli family. Busts, statues, angels, horses and poets' faces, the most beloved women and warriors will all welcome you here. The Gallery also hosts sculpture courses.
