There are only five buildings throughout Florence to have frescoed rooms on the ground floor. One of these is Palazzo Albizi, which houses, precisely in these rare historical spaces, Maestri di Fabbrica, a shop and bistro that brings together under the precious crossed vaults, different local realities united by their own artisanal vocation.
There are about thirty producers and brands involved, whose products can be found on store shelves. The offer is very wide: ranging from everyday accessories to stationery items, from personal and home fragrances, to costume jewelry, up to a bookshop dedicated to art. To this proposal, in the immediately adjacent spaces, is added the Amen Store, selling the jewelry of the homonymous brand.
If you are looking for a fun and original item for your home, created with the typical care of craftsmanship or a gift for all occasions, from the smallest to the most important, you will always find something special, perfect for you, in one of the sumptuous and articulated environments of Maestri di Fabbrica.
In addition to this already large proposal, there’s Il Ritrovo de’ Maestri, an ideal bistro for lunches, dinners or happy hours downtown, which, while maintaining high quality through careful selection of preparations and raw materials, has a disengaged and informal mood thanks to both the buffet formula (which, however, you can be sure, it has nothing cheap about it) and thanks to the speed and sympathy of the service. Do not neglect the rich wine list for an excellent glass to accompany your appetizers!
With its absolutely unique environments and its complete versatility that combines the recovery of Tuscan craftsmanship with a dynamic catering service in one of the most beautiful areas of the historic city center, Maestri di Fabbrica is truly a wonderful place, an absolute and unexpected must in the Florentine landscape.
