Shoe Making 23.11.14 : Assistant Report 7

Piazza Santa Croce.

A puppeteer in Piazza Santa Croce, this guy performs most Sundays in the piazza when the weather is good. All the little children and their family always get a kick out of the live puppet show. The music that goes along with the show is also great!

One of the best cappuccinos in Florence can be found at café Ditta Artigianale. I usually stick with a café normale or café Americano but here I always go for the cappuccino.

Ditta Artigianale on Via Dei Neri

The pattern for the lining of my puts, I traced the pattern onto leather using a silver pen before cutting it out.

The start of decorating my uppers.
