VIA TORNABUONI: A CONCENTRATION OF HISTORY AND BOUTIQUES IN FLORENCE
The success of Via De'Tornabuoni is that it is never overwhelmed by its long history or its glorious past, but continues to live solidly rooted in the present...... adorned by a golden glaze.
Via Tornabuoni has always been the cosmopolitan centre of Florentine life, not only of high society and fashion. In fact, the Gabinetto Scientifico e Letterario Visseux had its residence in Piazza Santa Trinita which became the meeting place for the best brains and talent in all of Europe. There are also two churches in this street abounding in antique art masterpieces - the Santa Trinità Church and the Church of Saints Michele and Gaetano which rise up amidst the most beautiful historical buildings.

prestigious designers of the fashion world, Thus, even today, Via Tornabuoni is a concentration of the history, news and events of the cosmopolitan Florence of the last two centuries.
