Shopping in Florence: Bartolucci

Here’s a little clock and wood shop that’s lovely to browse.


Featuring Pinocchio at the door. Its author and creator, Carlo Collodi, is buried in Florence at a cemetery off Piazza Michelangelo.

Check out the clocks on the wall, and the plain but beautiful decorations on the tree.


I bought a fridge magnet for my niece (flat things are pretty much the only things that might survive a backpack…) but she has lost it. MEH.

Souvenirs for sale include Pinocchio marionettes of varying sizes and wooden toys such as made-to-order rocking horses, but if you’re a tourist with little space in the luggage, you’ll probably pick up little knick-knacks like wooden clips, bottle stoppers and the like.

Find this at Via Condotta in Firenze.
