Jewelry Course : Second report (week1)

My first weekend in Florence I went to visit an outlet because one of my roommates wanted to go there, it was nice because there they had a lot of clothes and shoes. We spend almost all day there because the place was big. When we came back, we walked downtown and around the school.
The next day I went to visit “ Piazza Michelangelo” ,the view was amazing! I learn a lot at school. One of my goals is to do good designs and to be a great designer.

I love how Analisa teaches us, she is patient with us and friendly. She knows a lot of design and she is very professional in her works.

Mi primer fin de semana en Florencia, fui a visitar un outlet debido a que uno de mis compañeras de casa queria ir para alla. Fue agradable y emocionante a la vez, ya que fue mi primera vez que iba a uno de esos aqui en Italia habia un montón de ropa y zapatos.
Pasamos casi todo el día allí porque el lugar era grande, una vez que volvimos al centro, nos quedamos conociendo bien los alrededores de la Accademia.

Al día siguiente fuimos a visitar a ” Piazza Michelangelo ” mis compañeras de casa y yo. Una vez ahi en la piazza, pudimos observar la vista que hay desde ese lugar, la maravilla de cosas que ofrece el estar arriba y ver desde otro angulo Florencia.

En la Accademia aprendo muchas cosas, una de mis metas es hacer buenos diseños y para ser un gran diseñador .

Me encanta como Analisa nos enseña super bien, paciente con nosotros y amigable. Ella sabe mucho de diseño y es muy profesional en sus obras y en su aspecto laboral.

In these two weeks we’ve started to make this kind of projections.



I spend a lot of time with my classmates, I considered them like my family, because we almost make everything together.
We learn a lot each other and if we help each other as well.

Yo paso mucho tiempo con mis compañeros de clase, los consideraba como mi familia ya que aqui no tengo a nadie de Ecuador pero les tengo a ellas.



Art stage

Our first art stage was to Prato, we went to the tissue museum. It was very interesting to know about the tissue and how it’s was made.
The guide was very friendly and knows a lot of the tissue.

Nuestra primera salida de campo fue a Prato, fuimos al museo de los tejidos, un museo muy interesante en el aspecto de como nacio el tejido y como se ha ido desarrollando conforme pasan los años y avanza la tecnologia.



Visit to Prato



Walking tour

Every Friday I have a walking tour with a teacher Andy, she knows very well the culture and history of Florence.

Todos los viernes tenemos visita a museos o lugares turisticos, muestra porfesora Andy, hace que las clases sean diferente, entretenidas y muy alegres.
