Shoe Making 02.11.14 : Assistant Report 4

This weekend I went to a monthly antique market that takes place in Arezzo. Arezzo is a small city located one hour from Florence. The market is held through out the entire historic city center of Arezzo. I went looking for shoemaking tools but did not find any. Never the less, it was a great way to spend a Sunday and take a trip out of Florence with friends. We walked around the city, stopped for coffee and a light lunch. I will leave you with some pictures to better describe Arezzo.

This is the main piazza in Arezzo, this area has lots of furniture since it is a big open space.
