There are over 150 tiny historic doors (buchette del vino) hiding in plain sight in the city streets of Florence. Called wine doors (or wine windows) in English, these little portals allowed the noble families of Florence to sell their agricultural products directly to the common citizens in the era of Cosimo I de Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. This award-winning photography collection brings these long-forgotten elements of daily life to the present day and demonstrates the passage of time where they have been repurposed as restaurant menu shelves, door intercoms, and letterboxes. Some have become an evolving canvas for creative graffiti artists. This book captures a glimpse of the undiscovered history of Florence, actual doorways that have nearly vanished amongst the distractions of a modern tourist mecca.
