Biblioteca delle Oblate

Thanks to a lovely Italian gentleman who introduced me to this place, I have found a new home to work in. It is my new favorite hide away. It is located on Via San Egidio, just steps away from the Duomo. The building dates back to 1287, serving as a convent in the 15th century, and was the former home of the Monastero Delle Oblate. Then in 2007 it was restored by the Comune di Firenze and converted into an active public library.

One of my most favorite new places to work, write, reflect. :)
