I bought a gorgeous bowl here 16 years ago and I still have it proudly displayed in my kitchen. While there at the beginning of October we bought a plate and ornament. Love her things!

I saw the shop during a visit in Florence but I could buy ceramics. I contacted the shop via internet and buy two beautiful cats. Outstanding customer web service and marvelous design and color. I highly recommend this art shop.

Everything that we found in the shop was handmade by the owner. Beautiful tuscans landscape painted on this one of a kind pieces. Great gifts for friends and family! High quality work made from a true, very welcoming, artist!

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
