Street mimes in Piazza Signoria, Florence Italy

Florence, like most major cities, abound with street performers. In the Piazza Signoria the mimes raise their art form to a high level. While attending two weeks of Italian language school (La Scuola Tuscana) I would sit in the Piazza and do my homework. I became friends with Luigi Benassai, the mime you will see. (Italian with English subtitles).

Italy travel: Florence is famous for it’s leather goods

Italy travel: Florence, shopping for Florentine Leather. Our Perillo Tours Familia walks around “just another piazza.” Then, a demonstration on how 24 karat gold leaf is transferred on to leather, in one of the two shops that Perillo recommends. The other shop had a bonus: Aurelio, who looked liked he could be George Clooney’s brother, was working there. Not kidding about how much less expensive Aurelio’s leather jackets were as compared to the first store. Also very cool how Aurelio gave us a very personalized lesson on how to apply our initials in 24 karat gold on to the leather jackets we purchased!
