Posted on November 25, 2019November 26, 2019 by jordonsFirenze (Florence) We took a day trip to Florence to view masterworks at the Pitti Palace and an exhibition of paintings by contemporary German artist Neo Rausch. there seemed to be some time travel going on… Lots of inspiration for travel journals at the museum. The Pitti Palace was the residence of the d’Medici family and the artwork on view was their private collection. Of course there is always time for gelato. We found time to visit Zecchi, one of the oldest art supply stores in Florence. No shortage of things to purchase there! Afterwards, more drawing at he Piazza della Santissima Annunziata. Brunelleschi’s famed orphanage is in the background.
