ARKETIPO firenze

ARKETIPO was founded by a group of some Tuscan entrepreneurs in 1982 and since then proposes and creates upholstery of refined design. Its products combine top quality - reflecting the Tuscan textile manufacturing `savoir faire`- with attention to detail and a vibrant and contemporary image. After the acquisition by the group Cattelan Italia, one of its main goal has been brand reinforcement, relaunching and repositioning the brand in the high end sector of the market.
The image of ARKETIPO firenze has been completely restyled to emphasize the high level of artistic design combined with the excellent quality of Florentine manufacturing, renowned for style, sophistication and desirability around the world.

The identity project - by the creative group Cortez Elite - includes branding, advertising, catalogues and a special magazine.

An October Saturday in Bologna

Camera con Vista, via Santo Stefano
My short trip in Bologna : I began with coffee and cake at Follia Caffé, Strada Maggiore 13C. From there I walked through restored Corte Isolani
and went out in amazing Piazza Santo Stefano. 
I went around via Clavature to see typical food market and I walked 'till Piazza Cavour where there is the most beautiful ancient barber shop I've ever seen, Marchi. Then I followed via Carbonesi and Barberia and turned right to reach via porta Nuova.
Don't leave Bologna without a stop to Gelatauro, a wonderful icecream shop (gigembre, fenouille, Pumpkin and cinnamon)

Le Friulane, Italian handcrafted slippers

The friulane (or furlane) are handcrafted slippers taken from the ancient tradition of Friuli and later used from the gondoliers in Venice because their rubber sole was perfect to respect the paint of the gondolas.
They were originally created recycling old bicycle tires to make the sole, canvas jute bags (used for the transport of seeds and grains) to make the pads, and old clothes to make the uppers.
The traditional jewel-bright velvet slippers appear now as luxurious shoes, they are updated in many forms and still handcraftedly produced by artisans in northeast of Italy.
I bought mines at Mr Gianni Dittura's cobbler shop opened from 1948 in Venice San Marco 819–820, or Dorsoduro 871. Telephone: (+39) 041 5231163. I wear them at home but also outside in the summer, I love them!
