At El.Marneri Gallery

From time to time I visit the always charming El.Marneri gallery to stock up Santa Maria di Novella cosmetics
and check all the new arrivals. I loved the new Maria Mastori pieces, as well as Christina Kellidi’s
wooden jewels from her “Sculpting Geometry” collection.
In addition, I had the chance to enjoy the mesmerising exhibition “Blossom” of half-greek half-japanese artist
Mari Aoyama
, whose thousands of delicate little flowers, insects, mythical birds and creatures made of
paper, silk and rare materials from all around the world,
took me to a journey to her whimsical, exotic world.

The scent of Firenze

As promised, a post dedicated to the most ancient pharmaceutical workshop in the world.
Santa Maria di Novella in Florence is well known for its natural products from local herbs since 1612 and for producing the first perfume worldwide for Catherine de Medici. Now their vast collection includes from soaps and perfumes to facial skincare and wax. And the list is long. Being crazy about it ever since I came across their products at at El.Marnieri gallery, I couldn’t help but paying a visit at its historical and charming building in Florence when I traveled there.
