Foto D'Arte Firenze had great pleasure following the experts bringing Canova's masterpieces back to life.

For a year and a half we photographed this slow and meticulous workmanship from the beginning to the end.

We would like to share these particular moments with you. Here is a gallery of photos which were taken in Venice in the Storerooms of the Galleria dell'Accademia where the Metope of Canova had been taken to be restored.

Close to Piazza della Repubblica, in the heart of Florence, Palazzo Davanzati is a "must" for anyone who wants to feel the atmosphere of a typical Florentine mansion during the Renaissance.

It has survived the ravages of time when Florence was the capital of Italy and is a rare example of hybrid architecture between two epochs, combining the typical verticality of the medieval house with its tower and the spaciousness of the Renaissance Palace spread around its central court. For centuries, it has been the frame of the public and private lives of rich Florentine merchants and their families: first the Davizzi, who built it around the middle of 14th century, then the Bartolini Salimbeni, who bought it in 1516 and finally the Davanzati, who owned it from 1578 to 1838, the year in which Carlo, the last male heir of the Palace committed suicide. 

Since then, several structural modifications have determined the building we can see today, the most significant that of the eclectic antiquarian Elia Volpi, who bought it at the beginning of 20th century and furnished it in 14th century style to destine it as a private Museum "della Casa Fiorentina Antica". It soon became a Neo-Renaissance inspiration for foreign tourists, especially Americans.

Finally, in 1951 the building became the property of the Italian State and was destined as a Public Museum. Over the years it has gathered collections and precious objects from Florentine Galleries and donations resulting in a typical domestic Renaissance environment.

Visitors can admire the rich decorations, statues, pictures, affreschi with their stories of knights, tapestries and a precious collection of finely carved furniture with objects of every day use. You can relive the atmosphere of Renaissance daily life, its commerce, chivalric love, domestic work and pastimes when Florence was "the hub" of art, culture and wealth.

The Museum was closed to the public for a number of years due to restoration. Foto D'Arte Firenze shot a photographic campaign to document its new splendour, a work of prestige which required great accuracy and competence.

We have begun a photographic campaign to document all the artworks on the ceilings of the Uffizi Gallery.

This is an important task which underlines the experience and professionality of Foto D'Arte Firenze for Art photography and all its complexities.

Without doubt after the long period of preparation and organization, the actual wedding day slips away frenetically leaving the bride and groom with the sensation that time has flown.

At the end of the day, when tiredness and happiness replace the initial emotions, the memories remain of each significant moment of the ceremony: waiting for the bride, the bride's entrance in Church, the exchange of wedding rings, the embrace of friends, moments of collective joy and laughter.

But there are also many moments unseen by the couple, which contribute to this special day: touching glances of the nostalgic parents, the distracted children at play and what is never missing the “divertissement”, the moment when something unexpected and funny happens.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

The photographer's task is to collect and immortalize these moments for future generations of the new family, but also for the parents, relations and friends as tangible memories of their shared joy on that festive day.

The photos must not only bring back to mind the moment and freeze it in time but also help you relive that moment with all its sensations. Nothing is better than “a memory keepsake” of that special day to hold and transmit those sensations and emotions.

For this reason Foto D'arte Firenze has always taken great care to present

exclusive, elegant and quality fine art prints, choosing materials which will last through the test of time.

Your box of prints will become a work of art, a treasure chest where every print is a never to be forgotten thought carved in your memory forever.

More and more foreign couples choose Italy for their wedding ceremony due to its beauty and famous monuments.

Sometimes the future bride and groom are attracted to the "Belpaese" by memories left during a trip or work experience. This is the case of Brian, who lived and worked for a period of time in Tuscany and decided to return there to marry his Alison.

A week before the wedding, we met the two "Promessi Sposi" at the Hotel Villa Casagrande, a superior and elegant hotel located in the historical centre of Figline Valdarno, a small town stategically located between the cities of Florence, Arezzo and Siena, where the couple and their delighful daughter Livia are staying and where the wedding reception will be held. 

We spent a pleasant morning with Brian, Alison and Livia. It was a perfect occasion to get to know them better, to plan the wedding day and walk through the romantic alleys and squares of the city.

We would like to wish the couple all the best for their future!

Teatro della Pergola & Foto D'Arte Firenze

Written by

The Teatro della Pergola is the historic opera house of Florence. It is one of the oldest theatres in Italy and one of the richest historically.

The theatre was built between 1652 and 1656 under the patronage of the Accademia degli Immobili, the first to be built with oval-shaped tiers of boxes around the stalls.

At first it was a court theatre and was only opened to the public after 1718. The most famous composers and operas of the time were performed, ranging from Vivaldi to Meyerbeer.

In the first half of 1800 it presented classical Italian music; dramas by Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi, until the end of the century, when it started to switch to prose, thanks to the performances of the actress Eleonora Duse.

In the Sixties, the stage of La Pergola became one of the most important for Italian prose with perfomers like Eduardo De Filippo and Vittorio Gassman.

Nowadays it presents a wide range of more than 200 drama productions every year.

On June 2013 restoration work was started, with contributions from the Region of Tuscany given to create a theatrical reality for the city, so the Teatro della Pergola would continue to play a prominent role, thanks to its formal and aesthetic features.

The theatre entrusted the production of the whole photographic documentation of this work to Cristian Ceccanti and Ivan Rossi of Foto D'Arte Firenze.

In this video Ivan and I are taking pictures of the valued frescos in the Sala Oro.

PARENTI, Via Tornabuoni 93r Florence Italy - YOUR LUXURY SHOP IN ITALY SINCE 1865 - THE LUXURY WEDDING LIST

Chianti PetrioloSet on the hills of Rignano Valdarno, the Wine Farm Petriolo is surroundeded by a unique landscape: ancient villages and historic grapeyards draw the perfect frame within which the work creates stronger relationships with the land and roots. 

The Petriolo Wine Farm has heard many stories, hosting numerous lives over the years. The Mozzi, Bardi, Pazzi, Serristori, Da Filicaia and Da Verrazzano families have lived here, as well as a whole Congregation, and even San Francesco di Sales was a guest. 

A place where the grapevine means culture, tradition and respect.

This very respect for the natural heritage gave birth to the new wine cellar Petriolo, a modern structure which represents a perfect blend between technologigal innovation and the craftsmanship of Tuscany.

In its grapeyards set 300 meters above the sea, Petriolo take care of the protagonists of Tuscany: Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Canaiolo and Malvasia, the real soul of Chianti. The grapevines grow on a clayish and calcareous ground, with a solid skeleton, from which derives the unimistakable ruby red of the great Tuscan wines. The lands of Chianti host the traditional and vigorous Sangiovese and also internationale grapes, such as Merlot and Cabernet, essentials to obtain the most elegant harmony of flavours.

The knowledge and the skills of those who with passion take continuous care of the grapevines are essentials when harvesting the grapes.

These expert hands are able to choose the best grapes during the harvest. This is the moment when the grapeyards becomes lively and colorful, expressing the joy of having witnessed for centuries the growth of the best wines of this great land, Tuscany.

Land, tradition, passion and skilled hands which give a results wines worth tasting and remembering. Petriolo means all this, it is a story which gets renewed every day by the encounters with people.

Emiliano e Matteo have read this past and made a new story, lively and enthusiastic, which takes after a consolidate tradition. The renewing commitment of these young men for their job is what makes it possible for the past experience to be encacted again through a quality wine production.
