“Nightlife” on the Move

Florence can offer a lot of relaxing moments even during nighttime. But how does it move this somehow mysterious world, and what are the present tendencies that unite “the nightlife people”? We spoke to a few professionals from the geographical heart of the “nightlife” that is spoken so much of lately. “The tendency of people is to find a unique product of its kind” says Riccardo Tarantoli, owner of Red Garter, the historic place in Via dei Benci. “The ‘everyone does it all’ does not exist anymore; young people today love to wander in different places on the same night in order to get a different experience every time”. His bar joins into this “philosophy”, focusing on karaoke with live music and its Steakhouse type restaurant, based exclusively on meat, with no firsts or appetizers.

Giusto Manetti Battiloro When the family gold represents the excellence of Made in Italy

The Manetti family has an antique story that begins in Florence in the ‘600, during the ruling of the Medici. The chronic recount that in 1602, a lightning has destroyed the golden ball from the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore and Matteo Manetti, one of the best goldsmiths of the time, was assigned to restore the dome; this wasn’t an easy task, but he finished in only a month and on September 18, 1602, he was appointed the “Opera Goldsmith” by the Grand Duke of Tuscany. Ever since then, the tradition of producing the “golden foil” was never interrupted in Florence and the “golden foil” produced by Giusto Manetti Battiloro has the noblest of origins: craftsmanship, the “know-how” of the antic Florentine “battiloro” that still today, provide the golden foil to artists, gilders, architects and artisans in order to guilt and restore churches, palaces, cathedrals, monuments, furniture, frames... and not only.

Giovanni Boccaccio

Boccaccio, Italian writer, poet, correspondent of Petrarch, and an important Renaissance humanist is mostly known for his famous works The Decameron and On Famous Women. Noted for his realistic dialogue, which differed from that of his contemporaries, medieval writers who usually followed formulaic models for character and plot, he reflects both his bourgeois mercantile background and the chivalric ideals of the Neapolitan court in his works. The details of Boccaccio’s birth are uncertain. He is born (July or August) in Certaldo or in Florence to an unknown woman and Boccaccino di Chellino, a wealthy merchant who officially and without hesitation recognizes him. At an early age, Giovanni begins to study Latin, but his father did not encourage his literary interests, and by 1328 Boccaccio was in Naples to learn commerce.
