Florentine women: Simonetta Cattaneo Vespucci
Florence is one of the world capitals of art, a majestic open-air museum, immersed in beauty. Speaking of beauty, it comes natural to think of the extraordinary Venus of Botticelli, originally painted for the Medici Villa of Castello, and currently kept in the Uffizi Galleries.Add a comment
Florence is one of the cities of art par excellence. Immersed in the heart of Tuscany, in the center of Italy, it is a true epicenter of culture and beauty. It is precisely from beauty that the great art personalities, who were born or who lived here, have been inspired. Yet, even scientists are not immune to the magnetic charm of Florence! A woman, above all, has shone for talent and critical spirit: Margherita Hack.Add a comment

Falling in love with Florence is easy: all it takes is a walk along the riverbanks, getting lost in the streets of the city center and being inspired by the extraordinary works of art that populate every corner of the city. This centuries-old beauty has inspired brilliant minds and refined artists, but few tell the stories of the women who have made it into the city of incredible majesty that we all love.Add a comment
