I see the incredible value of furniture design because there are no longer as many carpenters as we've had in the past. Due to the advancement of factories and machinery, there is no longer the beauty of fitted furniture which made me start to question.

Ponte Vecchio is one of the most fascinating constructions in Firenze. It the only bridge which has survived through since 1345. A secret corridor for nobles to connect from Palazzo vecchio to Palazzo Pitti and Vasari has been commissioned. The corridor was the masterplan to be secured within the kingdom regimes. The corridor starts from Palazzo Vecchio, crosses uffizi gallery, ponte vecchio, and a kilometer away to be reached at Boboli garden. From the 20th century, the hallway exhibits the great artists’ self portraits
