Fasting and fish on Friday

In Florence, the city which has seen the literary likes of Dante, Boccaccio and Petrarca, the forefathers of our wonderful Italian language, there are still to this day, customs and habits which have been handed down for generations.
Expressions or ways of doing things that are typical of this Tuscan city and which make those from Florence immediately recognizable.
Amongst these traditions are many connected with the art of cooking, for example Baccalà alla fiorentina (salted codfish Florence style) which in the old traditions of Florence, was the typical dish on Fridays, a day in which religious fasting was observed and meat could not be eaten.

Ribollita and traditional flavor


    In the field of visual arts, three great masters lived in this city at the same time and irreversibly changed the language of architecture, painting and sculpture: Filippo Brunelleschi, Masaccio and Donatello.  To understand the importance of these men, it’s enough just to bring to mind the immense structure that Brunelleschi created, the dome of Santa Maria del Fiore, Florence’s cathedral and an unparalled masterpiece of engineering.  Florence has changed a lot over the years and without betraying its history, is also a contemporary city and in the forefront in many areas compared with other Italian cities.  Wandering through its medieval streets is a magical experience and if you close your eyes, you can still hear the voices of famous Florentines who changed the world with their creativity.

    Even the flavors have not changed over time, you only need to taste ribollita, a typical soup of this city or bistecca alla fiorentina, a T-bone steak cooked on an open flame and always served rare,  to immerse yourself in the dream of being in a timeless city.
