MAKE and TASTE: a full-immersive experience with ceramics and Tuscan food

star-5
Hi, my name is Matteo and thank you for being here!   In my family business we make Tuscan pottery since generations and after achieving the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor we decided to share our knowledge to who wants to discover that very ancient tradition.  In a full immersive two/three hours class we will experience together all the process in ceramic making.  After the class I will bring you to the Osteria di Fuori, the oldest restaurant in Montelupo (it was built on the Renaissance!) to enjoy a lunch made with typical Tuscan food and Chianti wine. Then I won't say more, it's a full-immersive experience that you have to feel with all your senses.

Fresco Workshop in Atelier

Fresco Workshop in Atelier

Fresco, meaning fresh in Italian, is the revered art of painting on fast-drying damp plaster with water based pigments. During the Renaissance, fresco painting was considered the true test of an artist's skill, since one had to finish before the plaster dried in order to ensure the adhesion of the image to the wall. During this 3-hour hands-on Florence Fresco Workshop, we'll learn basic fresco technique from a local Florentine artist who is a master of fresco painting.

VIRTUAL TOUR: All About Michelangelo in Florence

VIRTUAL TOUR: All About Michelangelo in Florence

Michelangelo, I love you! Follow me on a virtual tour about this artist's life, deeply connected to main landmarks in Florence. His birth, his childhood, his life experiences: not only a sculptor and a painter, but a young boy and later a man too. We will try to answer to some of the questions about this genius: was he really bad tempered? Was he really a good friend and a supporter of the Medici family? Did he later change his mind? Why did he join the Florentine Repubblica? Why had he a broken nose? Why did he never go back to Florence but in a coffin? Let's figure out the answers for these questions while virtually visiting the best highlights of Florence: Palazzo Medici, Santa Croce, San Lorenzo, Palazzo Vecchio. We will jump from one side of the city to another searching for the authentic Michelangelo. Dont' worry, we will not get tired of walking because we will be comfortably seated at home!

VIRTUAL TOUR: the Bargello Museum in Florence, from Penitentiary to Museum

VIRTUAL TOUR: the Bargello Museum in Florence, from Penitentiary to Museum

Among the many artistic pearls that embellish Florence we find the Bargello Museum: a museum in the heart of the city which, although less famous than other Florentine must-sees, represents a rarity not to be missed, especially for those who love sculpture. The gothic-style building has the appearance of a real fortress! Designed by Arnolfo di Cambio's father, Lapo Tedesco, it was built from 1255 to be the palace of the Captain of the people until, in the second half of the 16th century, it became the Palace of the Bargello, that was the chief of the police, therefore the seat of city prisons too. At the center of its courtyard we find today a well in whose place, until the abolition of death penalty implemented by Pietro Leopoldo Habsburg-Lorraine in the late 700s, there was the halter where the executions took place. Only in 1865, on the occasion of the sixth centenary of Dante Alighieri's birth, the Bargello was converted into the current museum.

VIRTUAL TOUR: Accademia Gallery, the David from closer up

VIRTUAL TOUR: Accademia Gallery, the David from closer up

The museum offers the world's largest and most important collection of paintings with gold background, not to mention the Museum of musical instruments, great passion of the Grand Prince Ferdinando de' Medici. The gallery was enriched with paintings from convents, monasteries and other religious institutions suppressed first by Pietro Leopoldo and then by Napoleon. But it was 1872 that marked the definitive turning point in the history of the museum, when Michelangelo's David was transferred here, subtracting this masterpiece from the deterioration due to its original outdoor location, in Piazza Signoria. The statue was slung in a complex wooden chariot and ran on rails through the streets of the city center to the Accademia. On 22 July 1882 the museum was finally inaugurated. What are we waiting for? Let's visit it together!
