A brand new day in Florence, while we start going back to normal after the last months restrictions! 🎉
👀 Everybody knows that Florence is the craddle of the Renaissance art, but not everybody knows that walking around Florence you can come across some unexpected contemproary art. Have you ever looked upwards and noticed some strange road signs? French artist Clat Abraham has donated some of his most famous street art installations to the city, modifying road signs with stickers, taking care not to alter the main function of the originals.
Despite he ran into some legal controversies, finally his message of freedom has successed.
If you havn’t yet made a florentine street art walking, now it’s time to plan for one!
Can you imagine? Google Maps also has created a dedicated map on purpose! Find it out! 🔎

Every new day brings a new curiosity for you from Florence! ↩
READ THIS STORY BELOW
⬇️🔸️⬇️🔸️⬇️🔸️⬇️🔸️⬇️
Have you ever noticed a bull head on the facade of the Florence
Cathedral? Not yet??
Well, while waiting to come and see with your own eyes, let us tell you
about this legend...Let's start by saying that there's two sides to that
story... The official version tells that this bull is a tribute to all the
animals that worked hard and helped to move and lift the heavy materials
used to build the Cathedral. But, as we said, there's another side of the
coin, as usual...Locals say that by that time, a carpenter had an affair
with the wife of a local merchant. After having discovered the adultery, the
merchant condemned the workers to end the relationship. The carpenter got
his revenge by putting the bull’s head on the Dome so that the horns would
point toward the cuckold’s workshop as a concrete witness of the betrayal.
.
Which version do you think it better fit with the Florentine character? .

Have you ever noticed this strange portrait carved on the face of Palazzo Vecchio in Florence?

Can you imagine that the great artist MICHELANGELO did it?
.
There are various versions of the story, but for sure who else could be allowed if not him to use the facade of Palazzo Vecchio in this way? .
If you never catched this hidden gem before, then we guess, it's time for you tk come back to Florence for a treasure hunt! 😉

Cari Ospiti, Amici e Viaggiatori del mondo, l’intera comunità mondiale sta affrontando in queste settimane le conseguenze del Corona Virus Covid-19, che partendo dalla Cina, in breve tempo si è propagato in ogni continente, e che da giorni sta scuotendo l’opinione pubblica internazionale.

Il governo italiano ha fatto una scelta importante e impegnativa, quella di emanare dei provvedimenti restrittivi fino al giorno 3 aprile 2020 sugli spostamenti delle persone, al di fuori dei confini di ogni provincia, regione e all’estero, per contenere il rischio di propagazione.

Ognuno di noi è tempestato quotidianamente di informazioni attraverso i media, la stampa e i social network. Da parte nostra vogliamo solo farvi sapere che noi stiamo bene, che il nostro team e le famiglie stanno bene, che il nostro territorio è preparato e la situazione è ben gestita. ⚠️ Per ulteriore garanzia abbiamo deciso una chiusura temporanea delle nostre attività fino al giorno 3 aprile.

Siamo fiduciosi, perché abbiamo imparato tanto dalla nostra storia - la storia millenaria di un paese che ha saputo affrontare i momenti più difficili con responsabilità, spirito di sacrificio comune e determinazione per creare un futuro sempre migliore.

Grazie a tutta la comunità internazionale dei viaggiatori per sostenerci e per tutte le testimonianze di affetto e apprezzamento che ci fate pervenire ogni giorno.

La vostra vicinanza, anche se virtuale, accorcia le distanze.

Noi continueremo a raccontare le bellezze dei nostri luoghi e a darvi informazioni e ispirazioni per quando verrete a farci visita. Siamo presenti, ci trovate per rispondere a tutte le vostre richieste, come sempre.

Queste tre settimane passeranno presto, ancor prima se accompagnati dal vostro sostegno!

Grazie a tutti!
Hotel Il Guelfo Bianco
🤍

COSA FARE A FIRENZE IN QUESTI GIORNI:
ARIA- Tomás Saraceno
📍 Palazzo Strozzi ( 10 minuti a piedi dal Guelfo Bianco)
22 febbraio - 19 luglio 2020.
⏱ Tutti i giorni inclusi i festivi 10.00-20.00
Giovedì 10.00-23.00

Artista visionario e poliedrico, la cui ricerca creativa unisce arte, scienze naturali e sociali, Tomás Saraceno invita a cambiare punto di vista sulla realtà e a entrare in connessione con elementi non umani come polvere, ragni o piante che diventano protagonisti delle sue installazioni e metafore del cosmo.
In un percorso di opere immersive ed esperienze partecipative tra il cortile e il Piano Nobile, la mostra esalta il contesto storico e simbolico di Palazzo Strozzi e di Firenze attraverso un profondo e originale dialogo tra Rinascimento e contemporaneità: dall’uomo al centro del mondo, all’uomo come parte di un universo in cui ricercare una nuova armonia.
