More and more foreign couples choose Italy for their wedding ceremony due to its beauty and famous monuments.

Sometimes the future bride and groom are attracted to the "Belpaese" by memories left during a trip or work experience. This is the case of Brian, who lived and worked for a period of time in Tuscany and decided to return there to marry his Alison.

A week before the wedding, we met the two "Promessi Sposi" at the Hotel Villa Casagrande, a superior and elegant hotel located in the historical centre of Figline Valdarno, a small town stategically located between the cities of Florence, Arezzo and Siena, where the couple and their delighful daughter Livia are staying and where the wedding reception will be held. 

We spent a pleasant morning with Brian, Alison and Livia. It was a perfect occasion to get to know them better, to plan the wedding day and walk through the romantic alleys and squares of the city.

We would like to wish the couple all the best for their future!

The day you have dreamt of, imagined and thought about thousands of times in your life has arrived at last, your own wedding day with its unique wealth of emotions. Emotions that come from your past: school, your first love, your first kiss, infatuation and passion. They all make sense when you meet your life soulmate and they can be materialized in your marriage promise, when your lifelong dream becomes a reality at last.

The period that precedes the ceremony has a particular significance for the future couple. So they decide to entrust this special memory to a "photographic engagement session", as it is called in the USA, where it has already become a norm.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

It is a kind of "prequel" to the marriage photographs, but it has a different language and photographic approach.There are no guests or public rituals to immortalize, just the engaged couple in casual dress, photographed in romantic, amusing and original poses.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

The chosen location is usually a place which has a special memory for the couple: the first meeting, the first kiss, the first shared holiday or the proposal, but they can choose any place they like that has the colour and atmosphere they want to tell their love story.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

For the photographers the engagement session is a perfect moment to get to know the bride and groom and help them get used to the photographic lense, so that on the great day they are not camera shy. Shooting in this relaxed atmosphere helps to create trust and a good relationship which is essential for the wedding day where there is less time due to the ceremony timetable.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

These photos provide the couple with an important chapter to add to their memory keepsake album and give a touch of originality which can be used for the invitations, table decorations, menus, presents for the guests so they will have a special memory of the day to take home with them.

In the article about the memory keepsake, we mentioned a selection of photos taken to represent the key moments of the marriage day.

In the past the photographer was hampered by the great preparation needed to take a photo. Today with the digital revolution he is able to catch all those special moments and not just the ceremony ritual.

This, together with the evolution of the social network, social changes and attitudes towards marriage has radically changed the language of wedding photography which has had to meet new canons of communication.

Marriage in no longer just characterised by the institutional moments of the ceremony but inspired by the narrative of reportage and street photography.

The events which best adapt themselves to this typology are the preparation of the bride, behind the scenes on the special day, the bride and groom walking into their future with all their emotions, hopes and expectations.

© Foto D'Arte Firenze

The marriage, like a play at the theatre puts the bridal couple in the limelight as opposed to their private moments. Its scenes of colletive festivity exalt the family, friends, the group and the photographer must move silently in the middle of all this and catch each gesture which might best describe the mood of the celebration.

© Foto D'Arte Firenze

These moments interpret an artistic genre and the photographer must use his sensitivity to regulate composition, frame, effects and chiaroscura, giving a rhythm and a personal stamp to the photographic marriage narrative. Thus it becomes "a work of art".

Without doubt after the long period of preparation and organization, the actual wedding day slips away frenetically leaving the bride and groom with the sensation that time has flown.

© Foto D'Arte Firenze

At the end of the day, when tiredness and happiness replace the initial emotions, the memories remain of each significant moment of the ceremony: waiting for the bride, the bride's entrance in Church, the exchange of wedding rings, the embrace of friends, moments of collective joy and laughter.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

But there are also many moments unseen by the couple, which contribute to this special day: touching glances of the nostalgic parents, the distracted children at play and what is never missing the “divertissement”, the moment when something unexpected and funny happens.


© Foto D'Arte Firenze

The photographer's task is to collect and immortalize these moments for future generations of the new family, but also for the parents, relations and friends as tangible memories of their shared joy on that festive day.

The photos must not only bring back to mind the moment and freeze it in time but also help you relive that moment with all its sensations. Nothing is better than “a memory keepsake” of that special day to hold and transmit those sensations and emotions.

For this reason Foto D'arte Firenze has always taken great care to present

exclusive, elegant and quality fine art prints, choosing materials which will last through the test of time.

Your box of prints will become a work of art, a treasure chest where every print is a never to be forgotten thought carved in your memory forever.

A work of art for your wedding album

Written by

With summer at the door the wedding period is coming and future couples have to make the important choice, not only of their photographic service, but also of which album to choose to recall through its colours, material and nuances the particular sensations of their wedding day.


For this reason Foto D'Arte Firenze has always been very careful in its choice of albums to propose to future couples: sobriety and elegance in contemporary taste, photobook albums or traditional albums in a wide variety of silks, satans, canvas, linen and leather made by specialized artisans.


An album which will give your photographic story a timeless fascination, a work of art able to survive time and its fashions.

Close to Piazza della Repubblica, in the heart of Florence, Palazzo Davanzati is a "must" for anyone who wants to feel the atmosphere of a typical Florentine mansion during the Renaissance.

It has survived the ravages of time when Florence was the capital of Italy and is a rare example of hybrid architecture between two epochs, combining the typical verticality of the medieval house with its tower and the spaciousness of the Renaissance Palace spread around its central court. For centuries, it has been the frame of the public and private lives of rich Florentine merchants and their families: first the Davizzi, who built it around the middle of 14th century, then the Bartolini Salimbeni, who bought it in 1516 and finally the Davanzati, who owned it from 1578 to 1838, the year in which Carlo, the last male heir of the Palace committed suicide. 

Since then, several structural modifications have determined the building we can see today, the most significant that of the eclectic antiquarian Elia Volpi, who bought it at the beginning of 20th century and furnished it in 14th century style to destine it as a private Museum "della Casa Fiorentina Antica". It soon became a Neo-Renaissance inspiration for foreign tourists, especially Americans.

Finally, in 1951 the building became the property of the Italian State and was destined as a Public Museum. Over the years it has gathered collections and precious objects from Florentine Galleries and donations resulting in a typical domestic Renaissance environment.

Visitors can admire the rich decorations, statues, pictures, affreschi with their stories of knights, tapestries and a precious collection of finely carved furniture with objects of every day use. You can relive the atmosphere of Renaissance daily life, its commerce, chivalric love, domestic work and pastimes when Florence was "the hub" of art, culture and wealth.

The Museum was closed to the public for a number of years due to restoration. Foto D'Arte Firenze shot a photographic campaign to document its new splendour, a work of prestige which required great accuracy and competence.

Rachael Smith is originally from Chesterfield in Derbyshire, but has lived in the small town of Figline Valdarno near Florence since 1998.

Her first wedding was her own in 2000, and she went on to plan weddings for friends who had fallen in love with the idea of getting married in Italy, and realised she had a flair for organising - and being organised!

One thing led to another and local venues began to contact her, and she began assisting couples with paperwork and interpreting at wedding ceremonies on a regular basis. More recently she has been collaborating with UK and Italy based wedding planners, as well as continuing to provide assistance to local venues and she works with a network of trusted suppliers. In 2012 she decided to set up Weddingsmiths.

Weddingsmiths specialise in organising weddings in the Chianti region, in particular in the small towns and hamlets found in the hills and valleys in the heart of Tuscany.

Foto D'Arte Firenze for the Uffizi Gallery

We have begun a photographic campaign to document all the artworks on the ceilings of the Uffizi Gallery.

This is an important task which underlines the experience and professionality of Foto D'Arte Firenze for Art photography and all its complexities.

Chianti PetrioloSet on the hills of Rignano Valdarno, the Wine Farm Petriolo is surroundeded by a unique landscape: ancient villages and historic grapeyards draw the perfect frame within which the work creates stronger relationships with the land and roots. 

The Petriolo Wine Farm has heard many stories, hosting numerous lives over the years. The Mozzi, Bardi, Pazzi, Serristori, Da Filicaia and Da Verrazzano families have lived here, as well as a whole Congregation, and even San Francesco di Sales was a guest. 

A place where the grapevine means culture, tradition and respect.

This very respect for the natural heritage gave birth to the new wine cellar Petriolo, a modern structure which represents a perfect blend between technologigal innovation and the craftsmanship of Tuscany.

In its grapeyards set 300 meters above the sea, Petriolo take care of the protagonists of Tuscany: Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Canaiolo and Malvasia, the real soul of Chianti. The grapevines grow on a clayish and calcareous ground, with a solid skeleton, from which derives the unimistakable ruby red of the great Tuscan wines. The lands of Chianti host the traditional and vigorous Sangiovese and also internationale grapes, such as Merlot and Cabernet, essentials to obtain the most elegant harmony of flavours.

The knowledge and the skills of those who with passion take continuous care of the grapevines are essentials when harvesting the grapes.

These expert hands are able to choose the best grapes during the harvest. This is the moment when the grapeyards becomes lively and colorful, expressing the joy of having witnessed for centuries the growth of the best wines of this great land, Tuscany.

Land, tradition, passion and skilled hands which give a results wines worth tasting and remembering. Petriolo means all this, it is a story which gets renewed every day by the encounters with people.

Emiliano e Matteo have read this past and made a new story, lively and enthusiastic, which takes after a consolidate tradition. The renewing commitment of these young men for their job is what makes it possible for the past experience to be encacted again through a quality wine production.

Teatro della Pergola & Foto D'Arte Firenze

Written by

The Teatro della Pergola is the historic opera house of Florence. It is one of the oldest theatres in Italy and one of the richest historically.

The theatre was built between 1652 and 1656 under the patronage of the Accademia degli Immobili, the first to be built with oval-shaped tiers of boxes around the stalls.

At first it was a court theatre and was only opened to the public after 1718. The most famous composers and operas of the time were performed, ranging from Vivaldi to Meyerbeer.

In the first half of 1800 it presented classical Italian music; dramas by Bellini, Donizetti and Verdi, until the end of the century, when it started to switch to prose, thanks to the performances of the actress Eleonora Duse.

In the Sixties, the stage of La Pergola became one of the most important for Italian prose with perfomers like Eduardo De Filippo and Vittorio Gassman.

Nowadays it presents a wide range of more than 200 drama productions every year.

theatre La Pergola

On June 2013 restoration work was started, with contributions from the Region of Tuscany given to create a theatrical reality for the city, so the Teatro della Pergola would continue to play a prominent role, thanks to its formal and aesthetic features.

The theatre entrusted the production of the whole photographic documentation of this work to Cristian Ceccanti and Ivan Rossi of Foto D'Arte Firenze.

In this video Ivan and I are taking pictures of the valued frescos in the Sala Oro.

La Cantina Fiorentina is not a prestigious enoteca but it is much more than a wine shop.

Inside the shop you'll find many typical local products from cheeses, salame, prosciutto, mortadella, etc...to bread cooked in a wood fired oven and homemade jams as well as a large quantity of Tuscan wines at excellent prices.

Osservatorio sull'Architettura - Targetti Foundation

Written by

2004 - 2010 Meetings organized by the Osservatorio sull'Architettura

The Osservatorio sull'Architettura is a series of meetings aimed at investigating and analysing the intricacies of contemporary architecture.

Since light is what places man in relation to space, it is easy to see how the Targetti Foundation came to occupy itself with architecture.

The occasion, a meeting with a group of architects and critics who, with their research and design work advocated a precise idea: that architecture is first and foremost a thought, a complex intellectual process to be built around man.

This is how the Osservatorio sull'Architettura was born, and the inspiration for the meetings organised to investigate and analyse the complex phenomenon associated to the world of contemporary architecture and its interaction with the arts, sciences, techniques, philosophy, sociology, economics and politics.

Florence, Targetti Foundation

Since 2004, the Osservatorio sull'Architettura has invited a variety of different people such as Norman Foster, Yona Friedman, Thom Mayne, Peter Eisenman, Bernard Tschumi, Vito Acconci, Greg Lynn and Alvaro Siza. And, also Dennis Frenchman, Cecil Balmond, Sergio Fajardo, Diller and Scofidio.

Despite the evident differences between these people, they are all united by the fact of being absolute protagonists of their time, but also "cultivators of ideas", intepreters of a discipline that reflects society and its continuous transformations.

Targetti

Foto D'Arte Firenze @ Osservatorio sull'Architettura

Foto D'Arte Firenze has been asked to document all the meetings since 2004 that have taken place with the most famous architects in the world, guests and speakers at the conferences organised in Florence, often with the splended frame of the Salone dei Cinquecento, the largest and most important as far as regards the historic-artistic profile of the Palazzo Vecchio.

 THE INVISIBLE RED LINE

The transcriptions of the projects of some of the great names that have given life to the Observatory's activities and the accompanying critical contributions are brought together in the book "L'invisibile linea rossa" (The Invisible Red Line) by Quodlibet. 

The publication, edited by the director of the Observatory, Pino Brugellis, brings together the reflections of individuals from backgrounds and languages that are often very different to each other, but nevertheless similar, since they all work with demonstrated humility despite their outstanding careers and many accolades. They have the humility to interrogate themselves on the sense of their work and on doing architecture today.

WHO IS TARGETTI?

Founded in 1928 with its headquarters in Florence, Targetti operates in the field of interior and exterior architectural lighting offering products and ad ho solutions, developed in response to specific functional and aesthetic challenges.

Past and present

Targetti was born in 1928 in the heart of Florence as a small shop selling lamps and related products. Today Targetti continues to effortlessy combine functionality and design in its production and marketing off over 2,000 lighting system and products.

Lisetta Rossi HARPIST

Written by

To realize images for such an exceptional harpist accompanied by the magic notes of her harp Herard Freres was for Foto D'Arte Firenze an unusual and artistically rewarding experience.

Who is Lisetta Rossi?

Lisetta Rossi, concert harpist, is from Florence, Italy. She is currently professor of harp at the "Giacomo Puccini" Conservatory in La Spezia. From 2003 to 2010 she held a position at the G. Verdi Conservatory in Milan, teaching advanced harp as well as history of music and analysis of harp repertory, instrumental pedagogy, and harp ensemble.

Since 1994 many young harpists have attended her summer courses, seminars and masterclasses held in Italy, France, England, Portugal and Bulgaria, thus being given the opportunity to take advantage of the artistic and professional experience she reflects in her teaching-experience not only as a soloist but also as part of chamber ensemble and orchestras.

She has been invited regularly to serve on the juries of competitions, and at the same time, many of her pupils have won awards in both national and international competitions.

After receiving her diploma in harp with the highest grades and "cum laude" from the Venice conservatory, she went on to further her training with maestri from the German, French and American schools and also attended courses in chamber music with Riccardo Brengola at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome.

In addition to her musical education, she received a diploma in social sciences and has pursued disciplines complementary to artistic training such as Alexander, Feldenkreis, Taijiquan and the Stanislavskyij method. Ms Rossi has appeared as a soloist and chamber music musician in international festivals in Italy as well as around Europe, and has collaborated with such artists as Carme, Ensemble Ambrosiano, Antidogma, Ex-Novo Ensemble, Musica d'Oggi, Ensemble Garbarino and the Orchestra of the Pomeriggi Musicali. From 2003 to 2007, as principal harp of the RAI National Symphony Orchestra in Turin and with chamber groups stemming from the same orchestra, she has taken part in annual festivals of contemporary music, Nuova Musica of Turin, and the Biennale of Venice, performing numerous world premieres.

In the same role, Rossi has collaborated with other prestigious orchestras such as Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, the RAI orchestra of Milan, the RAI orchestra of Roma, the orchestra of the Saõ Carlos Theater of Lisbona, performing under the direction of Maestri Muti, Chailly, Gavazzeni, Bertini, Imbal, Barshay, De Burgos, Rath, Noseda, Kuhn and lastly, C. Tielemann under whose direction she performed Mozart's Concerto in C major K 299 for flute and harp.

Since 2007 Lisetta Rossi has collaborated with the association, Tesori Musicali Toscani, taking charge of the research and editing of previously unpblished works for the single action harp. For this kind of harp she has recorded the XII Sonate per Arpa by Giovanni Francesco Giuliani for the label, Brilliant Classics on an instrument built by Erard in 1818.
