People often ask me when is the best time to visit Florence, and my answer is always - October. This is a special time, when after long months of heat, blinding sunshine and bustling crowds, everything slows down. Air gets crisp, light becomes soft and Florence - irresistible.
If you'd like to experience the city at its best and capture those magical moments, join Sanda Vuckovic, Renée Kemps and me for a food and lifestyle photography workshop in October. We will be staying at beautiful Numeroventi - design residence inside an old palazzo Galli Tassi. We will walk the streets of Florence, visit local markets and makers. We will play around with food styling and photography and share delicious meals prepared by Emiko Davies.

The other day I had a chance to visit Numeroventi, beautiful minimal space full of light, stunning furniture, design objects, books and magazines. Located in the very heart of Florence, via Pandolfini, inside the old Palazzo Galli Tassi, Numeroventi is an exhibition space and artist's residence. Just opened it already hosted some events, such as an art exhibition, fashion photoshoots and a workshop. Born to bring creatives together it's a unique place where people can gather and enjoy art, design, photography within an informal place over a cup of coffee.
And that's not all! The space can be rented for short stays as well. It' s divided into three spacious apartments each with it's own bedroom, private bathroom and one shared kitchen. So if you are planning to visit Florence and stay off beaten path make sure to check this place out.
