Meet the correspondents: FLORENCE > Alessandro Andreuccetti



"I live in San Gimignano, a small medieval town in Tuscany, between Florence and Siena. I studied art and architecture in Florence several years ago and really love this fantastic city. Now I like to walk along the banks of the Arno river and along the small streets of the old town, smelling the air full of history of Renaissance palaces, where Michelangelo, Botticelli, Leonardo and many other great artists lived and worked.

I love sketching these buildings and people who travel these roads and I like to portray the many statues that decorate the city, similar to witnesses and guards. I take notes on moleskine and then revise them in my study.

My sketching tools are the moleskine, some fountain pens Lamy Safari with black waterproof ink Noodle's, Winsor & Newton watercolors."
