Another Day in Florence with friends from Brisbane

Today we meet up with Nicole again and her daughter, one of my best art students at St Peters Lutheran College. She has been studying art in Florence and now helps out with her partner who ownes a Restaurant in Florence.

We met then at the Piazza Repubblica. Coffee first then off with our personal guide! Le Giubbe Rosse is the restaurant wher the artists such as Dali, Man Ray and so on, would meet and discuss the future of art.

Nicole took us to the private collection in the Museo di Palazzo Davanzati before we went to lunch. The palazzo was built for the Davazzi family in the middle of the 14th Century and then purchased by the Davanzati amily in 1578. The experience was very different from the normal tourist visit.

After Lunch we walked to Stefano Bardini's exposition gallery in Piazza de'Mozzi, or 'an all blue gallery' another private collection.
