In fact Fabio Picchi – a true cooking enthusiast, and a typical florentine histrionic character – is part of this city’s culinary tradition, thanks to his four creations: Cibreo Restaurant, Cibreino Trattoria, Caffè Cibreo and Teatro del Sale.

David Fetta: king of the Florence nightlife

By |25 November, 2015|Categories: Clubbing and Nightlife|

My name is Fetta, David Fetta. Music is my life, the night is my natural habitat.
I rarely go out during the day; objects, places and people only seem to interest me when they are in the moonlight. My heart throbs in 4/4, 120 beats per minute, in sync with the records that I spin every night on my consolle.
When I’m not spicing up the party myself, I love to explore the city clubs, as I am constantly looking for the perfect beat.

Give […]
