Hello readers! I’m quickly writing to let you know I will be teaming up with art and history expert Alexandra Lawrence for a special Walk + Talk event this Friday October 9th!
Here is the event details from Alexandra’s Facebook page:
“How did people really eat, drink, live and love during the Renaissance? We will attempt to answer this with a visit to Palazzo Davanzati and the exhibition “Il sole in casa”, which explores daily life through Italian ceramics. Different domestic objects in the palazzo—ranging from furniture to famous 14th c. frescoed stories on the bedroom walls—illustrate gender roles, home décor, food culture, the role of the minor arts and artisans in Renaissance homes, and much more.
After the visit, join us for a private guided tasting of Renaissance elixirs by Florence’s most seasoned and fascinating mixologist at Mayday. Go back in time to imbibe historical medicinal liqueurs, house-made essences, Renaissance potions and potent concoctions, all paired with artisan cheeses that were nibbled during the same time period. We will be accompanied by local food blogger Curious Appetite (that’s me!) who is on top of the contemporary food and drink scene in town and who will give us a deeper understanding of the cocktail and elixir culture of Florence’s most defining era. Not to be missed!”
For those of you in town and would like to combine a fascinating art walk lead by one of the most sought out art history experts in Florence (Alexandra) with a potion stop to imbibe in some Renaissance mixology at Florence’s truly speakeasy craft cocktail lounge, contact me firstname.lastname@example.org or Alexandra email@example.com to RSVP
