International Crafts Exhibition in Florence

Saturday I’ve spent a beautiful day in Florence at the Handicraft Exhibition (http://www.mostraartigianato.it/). A lot of amazing stands of Italian manifacture, so many colours, people, expert artisans who really love their work as you can see from the passion in their eyes. That’s the reason why of their tremendous pieces of art. My boyfriend and I stopped in many exhibitions as you can see from the pics.
In particular, I’ve talked to a very nice mosaic artisan named Lucia, who explain to us how she works, the method used. She was so kind to let me take some pictures of her and her works. Here below some photos. (www.luciamosaici.it)


After, a clay bust exhibition outside, plexiglas lamps, crazy pendants, glass manifactures, all the kind of jewelry, ceramics and many many more. Finally we get to the famous italian and florentine painter Piero Morandi, who had a very wise stand, in wich Ste and I saw two marvellous paintings dedicated to two women seen from behind. Gorgeous. Ste bought them, so they are already in our bedroom.. Beautiful!

Come to Florence, Artigianato loves you!
