Solo a Firenze began in 1997 as a workshop for the arts and artistic craftsmanship. It was founded by Elena Bellini who had a passion for the longstanding Florentine tradition of hand produced artisanal creations. She selects the best of what Florence has to offer and sells a board selection of artisanal jewelry and accessories, paintings, unique postcards, silver work including beautiful frames, and ceramics, just to name a few.
