Then, we start research and develop our own personal identity (like target market, influence design, inspirations, details, colours, fabrics, etc). To research and deepen design identity it can be difficult, challenging, and also interesting at the same time.

Life in Florence

One of Cinque Terre beautiful view

I arrived in Florence on August 29, 2019. The next day after I arrival I travel to Cinque Terre. The Cinque Terre area is a popular tourist destination. And, Cinque Terre meaning Five Lands is a coastal area within Liguria, in the northwest of Italy. It lies west of La Spezia, and comprises five villages are Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore.

On my 2nd day I went to Pisa. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is the campanile, or freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa, known worldwide for its nearly four-degree lean, the result of an unstable foundation. The tower is situated behind the Pisa Cathedral and is the third-oldest structure in the city’s Cathedral Square (Piazza del Duomo), after the cathedral and the Pisa Baptistry.

So far, my journey in Italy been so wonderful.
