From the second half of the twelfth century, Florence developed the so-called “Arti” or trade guilds. These associations were responsible for protecting and managing the interests of a specific professional category or an individual trade. Following the itinerary on your smartphone, this audio guided walk will take you on a quest aimed at recognising some historical buildings in which these guilds had their headquarters. Dive into a Renaissance Florentine setting as you stroll through the streets of Florence at your own pace. Learn how the so-called “Arti di Firenze” were born, and how they shaped society. Enjoy complete autonomy through the use of your smartphone and headphones as you discover six different guilds.
