Street Art Snaps: Florence, Italy – Part One

Florence, Italy. August 2014.

First part of a whole truckload of photos of street art that I have unintendedly amassed over the last few months. One thing I love about Florence is how they don’t try to cover up the street art; instead they allow–even encourage–it to become part of the personality of the city.

One of the most ubiquitous sets of art I’ve seen around the city is by the artist I  only recently found out is called Enter/Exit. Simple but evocative–and I have a whole lot more photos of these in succeeding months. Is there such a thing as hoarding street art via photos?

Prato, Firenze, Italy. September 2014.

Went to Prato on a school field trip to the Museo del Tessuto (textile museum), snapping photos along the way. Prato is a sub-commune of Florence, and is a less dense, quieter neighbor just 20 minutes away by train.

Florence, Italy. August – September 2014.

I’m splitting all my posts on Florence because there are too many photos to post all at once, and I’m still amassing a whole truckload of others while I’m here. I had been to Florence twice before coming for school this year, but both visits had been short and tourist-spot-centric. It’s really only now that I get to walk and explore the city everyday that I’m able to focus on the details, even the most random, seemingly-minute ones.

I saw this interesting display inside Polimoda, whose campus is so nice btw.

And there really should be a miniseries featuring the tiniest cars of Italy. Because.
