07-Places | Four Seasons Florence - This Is Glamorous

Today’s beautiful destination is not only the home for the Pitti Uomo men's fashion show, but also the home of Renaissance architecture: Florence. Italy’s most romantic city vibrates with the energy, beauty and the discovery of emerging architects, artists and chefs.

The enchanting city is holding the 89th edition of Putti Uomo, a Fashion Masculine Salon in Florence. In 1972, the first Pitti Uomo took place, showcasing Italian tailoring and style to the foreign markets. Putti Uomo began with Giovanni Battista Giorgini, an aristocratic Italian from the Lucca family, who had business interests in Italian exports. He invited key buyers and influencers from the United States to Florence, and in this way, created the ‘High Italian Fashion Show’.

Among the myriad varieties of beauty that you may encounter at every corner of Florence amongst the cafés or trattorias, the magnificent Four Seasons is the infusion of every single beautiful detail.

Il pallazo della Gherardesca was once the private residence of Florentine nobles, including a Pope, for five centuries before being transformed into the luxury hotel. Along with the adjacent 16th-century building, “La Villa”, Four Seasons Firenze has 116 rooms in all, including 44 luxurious suites, making it the largest property in Florence (or Firenze as the Italians call it).

With its museum-worthy frescoes, stuccos and painted ceilings the hotel offers a breathtaking escape.

Dana is a fragile dreamer, they say, arriving in Paris four years ago, for love, and the city has been constantly changing her life since then. Hers is a world of books, (Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Anne Berest), expos, long walks sur les quais de Seine, pink skies, fine wine and peonies.
