Windows from the Past

The little square window is one of twelve in the the studio at 19 via dei Macci where first Billy Manfredi, then Robert, lived in the 1970’s. It was the attic of a 12th century church in the leather tanning district of Florence – meant to be safe from the plague because of the fumes from leather making process.

Also in the Bargello, windows are reflected in a splendid plate.

  1. Absolutely beautiful photos, Elizabeth. I have a passion for little windows on houses. Especially on cottages. I also like this time of the year when it gets dark early and you can peek inside while driving by and see families around the dinner table and see what color their walls are painted. : ) Have a beautiful weekend. Isn’t it crazy how warm it is here in New York today??? xo
