Louise Fili

Book - 2018

"Shop and eat like a Florentine with this newly updated pocket-sized guide to the best of the magnificent Tuscan city known for its art, culture, and cuisine. Celebrated graphic designer and self-described Italophile Louise Fili, with connoisseur of all things Lise Apatoff, takes you on eight walks through Florence, discussing more than seventy of the city's most alluring shops--some run by the same families for generations, others offering young entrepreneurs' fresh interpretatio...ns of traditional techniques. Discerning travelers will discover rare books and charming hats, vintage Pucci and handmade shoes, cioccolate da bere (drinkable chocolate), colorful buttons, and bolts of rich silk fabric in this enchanting introduction to makers and purveyors of cloths, home decor, accessories, specialty foods, and much more. For each shop, there is a full-color photo, description of specialties, and information on location and hours of operation."
