Historical shops and craftmanship

Florence’s unique identity is built up of a number of elements. One of these is certainly world-famous art treasures of the past, but the very much alive tradition of craftsmanship is, and always has been, a very important aspect of daily Florentine life. Florence, and particularly certain areas like the characteristic 'Oltrarno' (the 'other side' of Arno River), is scattered with historical shops where craftwork has been handed down from generation to generation.
 
The following websites provide information about artisans and techniques, propose itineraries to visit these historical businesses and information about courses, single stores, etc.
 

  

Esercizi Storici Fiorentini (Historic Florentine Businesses)
Website dedicated to historic, traditional businesses in the city – a project of the city of Florence.
 
 

 fondaz_artigianato

The Italian side of the website is more frequently updated and is a good place to find out more about professional courses in this field, as well as vacant internships.
  

 

               

 

Diladdarno (Florence Beyond The River)
Website dedicated to artisan trade news, commerce, culture, events, museums, transportation and services in the Oltrarno.
