Hi I am Sophia Sanchez and I’m from the Philippines. I have a bachelor’s degree in Architecture, and I also have my professional license as an Architect in the Philippines. I’ve worked in an architectural firm for a few years, and eventually tried working for a furniture designer for 2 1/2 years. It was then I gained interest in furniture design, and decided to also pursue this. I am now taking up my Master’s in Furniture design in Accademia Riaci to boost my knowledge and learn more about this area of design.

Furniture Design vol.4 – Master Course 2018 (s.s)

On today’s art visit, we went to Santo Spirito. This church was designed by Brunelleschi, but his design was not fully executed as planned because he had passed while the church was under construction. The teacher discussed on how this used to be a hospital, as well as the venue of a political instability event that had happened before. The church catered artworks from different artists, such as Michelangelo, and a total of 18 chapels inside.

I’ve almost done with the final design of my table. I’m currently making a few adjustments and revisions so that I can finally proceed with the technical drawings. For the finishing of my table, I’m playing around with different shades to see what works best for the final look of my table.

We also dropped by at Palazzo di Bianca Capello. It is a renaissance style palace owned by the Corbinelli family. The teacher discussed that this palace was where the mistress(soon turned wife) of one of the dukes of the Medici Family stayed. She also told us that the duke made a tunnel from the Pitti Palace to Palazzo di Bianca Capello for them to meet.

Last week, my brother and his husband visited me. We went up to the Duomo and had this amazing view of Florence. We also went to the Gucci Garden, a flea market, and a few antique shops. We had coffee at different cafes and also ate at a fancy restaurant. It was my first time to try out a Florentine steak and it was really good!

In my free time, I went to Siena for a day trip. I was alone when I went there but I didn’t get lost or had a hard time. I went to visit Siena Cathedral, Piazza del Campo, Palazzo Salimbeni, Basilica Cateriniana San Domenico, and Orto Dei Tolomei. Even though it I was there for a day, it felt like I’ve seen so much of Siena!
