Renaissance Man

At the twilight of the 13th century, the city-state of Florence was a small and vulnerable republic surrounded by the superpowers of Milan, Venice, and Rome. Yet here in the heart of Tuscany, a small group of intellectuals and artists illuminated the Dark Ages by igniting the humanist movement that became known as the Italian Renaissance. Just as these lovers of knowledge embraced the wisdom and beauty of the lost classical world, so do today’s visionaries seek inspiration among Florence’s ancient splendors. In and around the Florentine hotel Il Salviatino, we showcase modern Italian-made clothing designs that draw upon the past in celebrating the art of the human form.
