Divine Dinners

Marina Calamai and Alessandro Pacchiani

Divine Dinners by Cookware Couture takes us on a journey into the private homes of legendary Florentines where we give our hosts the opportunity to Enjoy The Taste Of Luxury.

Today’s Reinassance Woman

There never seems to be a shortage of artistic pursuit in Florence with its prevalent ethos and culture to lend inspiration. This month’s Divine Dinner created by Cookware Couture was hosted by accomplished artist Marina Calamai, a life-long resident of the Santo Spirito neighbourhood in the bohemian Oltrarno district, an area famous for its artists, artisans and their botteghe (workshops) ongoing since Renaissance times. Just a stone’s throw from her current home with husband Alessandro Pacchiani, Marina grew up in the XV century Palazzo Guicciardini, her family’s namesake and home for several generations, and currently where her artist’s studio perches high above with its glorious views over Florence. “I think of Florence as my city of artists,” Marina shares. “When I was ten years old, you would see so many artisans working in the streets outside of their botteghe. Everyone was creating.”
