The Creative People in Florence Map (#CPiFMap) features fourteen artisans and designers across the city whose work spans jewelry, accessories, fashion, design objects, housewares and more, all exclusively handmade in Florence. More than just a network of shops, all the points on the map are also working art or design studios where visitors can meet the designers and see their products being made.
To introduce to you the CPiFMap team, we have packed our fall calendar with an exciting series of Open Studio Visits. Join us to meet the designers, learn how they built their brands and maintain their practices, and get a peek behind the scenes at their busy workshops, studios and ateliers.
Our first visit on September 19 from 6-8pm features jewelry designer Sara Amrhein and fashion designer Tiziana Alemmani. At 6pm, we will meet Sara at her workshop in Via dello Sprone 9r, see her materials up close, and hear about her bold and colorful statement jewelry made in polymer clay. At 7pm we will head over to Sartoria Tiziana Alemanni in Sdrucciolo de’ Pitti 20r to take a peek behind the scenes of this haute couture fashion design atelier. All are welcome to join for part or all of the visit. Free.
On September 27 from 6-8pm, join us to explore the workspaces of Eleolab and New Kid, two of the designers featured on the Creative People in Florence Map. Starting at Eleolab (Via Arnolfo 11r) at 6pm, we will meet Eleonora, and learn about her line of exquisite accessories and clothing, including headpieces, silk flowers and jewelry. Then at 7pm we’ll head around the corner to check out New Kid and their collections of footwear, accessories and fashion. Come along to ask the designers about their materials, tools and techniques, learn how they built their brands, and meet other curious creatives like yourself. All are welcome! Free and fun.
