☼MY LATEST BLOG POST☼: A beautiful, "Made in Italy" success story: Angela Caputi.

Today, I would like to put one of my favorite Florentine artists/designers in the spotlight. One of these inspiring people who are on the forefront of innovation, design and entrepreneurship, yet at the same time keen on preserving the traditional craftsmanship and savoir-faire of yesteryear. - See more at: http://slowitaly.yourguidetoitaly.com/2015/03/angela-caputi/
