Places I love ♥ : Giubbe Rosse

This gorgeous café, founded in the early 1900's, by the german Reininghaus brothers, was a meeting point for the artists who developed the Futurist artist movement. You can still feel the passion and creativity bouncing through the air when you enter this café. The walls are plastered with art deco, contemporary art, drawings, still life paintings, and current art installations. It is still a favorite local staple for the older generations of Florentines as well as tourists.

It is one of my favorite places in Florence for a light snack during the day, a spritz in the early evening, or my favorite : cioccolata calda in the evening. I always feel like I am stepping back in time when I go here, maybe you will too!

Such a great place!
I wasn't a fan of their futurist manifesto but they did produce some interesting art. This is what I love about Europe, to be able to step back in time even if it is at your local cafe or restaurant.
