Mr Nannini is an elderly man, but still full of energy and love for his disappearing work. You can't go at his workshop with a USB key, asking to print a JPEG image simply because they don't use anything digital. All is done as it was long time ago. The paper they use, tha Amalfi paper that Frederick II king of Sicily forbade in favour of parchment as more long-lsting (but still there are documents written in Amalfi paper dating back to the XIV century): is something that you need to touch with your fingers to feel what intense emotions it can give you. Books and notebooks painstakingly made with incredible paintings drawn on leather by his wife Giselda, braeathtaking bookmarks (physical, for real books, not for browsers ...) and a totally mechanical printing machine, actually astonishing if you have the chance to see it when printing some incredible cards. The workshop is located near Porta Camollia, where the city walls opens towards Florence. Don't miss it!!!
