In 2016, I created the This Tuscan Life magazine. It started out as a book draft actually and this issue, November was to be the first of many 'chapters'.
This first issue was only 16 pages long and there was an error in the article about olives at the frantoio where I refer to them as 'grapes'. (you can never proof-read too many times!)
Issue Number 3, January 2017
This cover was from the archives of Giovanni Battista Giorgini, founder of the Pitti Fashion shows that take place in Florence each year in January & June. The first show was held in 1951 and was such a success that the following year, The City of Florence opened the Sala Bianca in Palazzo Pitti to accommodate the International buyers.

I always love discovering new fashion brands and so you can imagine my delight when I was recently introduced to a beautiful new Florentine brand called @pavonefirenze.
Founded in 2019 by Creative Directors Angela Testani and Massimo Brilli, PAVóNE FIRENZE is a women’s shoe and accessory collection, designed and created in Florence.
If you are looking for a new and special experience outside of the bustling city center, take a little walk to Cafe 19.26. It’s not a restaurant, nor a trattoria but a little bistrot where you might pop in for a coffee, stay for lunch and come back in the evening for a night-cap.
