One of the most original activities at Scuola Toscana,
is the visit to a Florentine artisan, who has his workshop in San Frediano.
San Frediano, in Oltrarno, the “other” side of the river, is home to many workshops, where you can still see expert craftsmen working with their hand to create the traditional florentine craft. These
workshops have handed down their “know-how” from generation to generation and by so doing have played an invaluable part in conserving a legacy of ready invention and ingenuity that more than merits attention.
Thursday we went to Mr Cecchi’s workshop – he is a friend of Scuola Toscana, always more than happy to explain his work to the students.
An unvaluable occasion for the students at Scuola Toscana, another special way to learn italian in Florence…
