  • Florence is the city where art appears before our eyes in every corner. From the two hundred to the Macchiaoli is all there, but it is Oltrarno that the city reveals itself genuine. The premises that were once ancient tavernas, the Torre San Niccolò and the alleys of the old marginalized neighborhoods of the city, everything on the other edge of the Arno River makes us breathe an authentic Florence. It is right there, in the Lungarno Cellini that is one of the most fascinating studios in Florence; that of the Guarnieri brothers. Growing up there in that studio where their father worked, Roberto and Rodolfo learned to paint, just as it was once done in ancient Florence, where art as a craft was transmitted from master to "apprentice", where the great artists of the Renaissance that today populate the galleries and museums of the city. As soon as we approach the garrison studio we can already see the works on display on the sidewalk next to the front door. A sympathetic invitation, which makes us understand that the doors are open for those who want to know their work. When we enter, we are immediately involved in an atmosphere of creative effervescence. The colors in the paintings capture images typical of an international Tuscany, such as that of cypress trees. The Cathedral has its Brunelleschi dome revisited in several bright colors. Even the old technique of fresco is reproposed by the Guarnieri brothers in materials such as wood, something never imagined in the days of Giotto or Michelangelo. The talent jumps off every wall of that cozy studio and above all it tells us that Florence is not just art of the past. Tourists and Florentines can now, every time more, count with a city that enhances its past but highlights the value of its contemporary artist. When we leave the Garrnistudio, we are garnished with art.

  • I had a day in Florence and my friend told me to go here. I was not dissapointed. They were really nice to me and gave me coffe, showed me around, and we had a nice conversation. Really pleasant people! I wanted to buy a picture so Robert and I took a look at a few paintings. Highly recommended to go there! One of the highlights in Florence :)
  • We wish we could give Roberto and the team MORE than 5 STARS. We arrived to the gallery late on Saturday night, and found that the gallery was closed. As other reviewer suggested, we called the phone number on the door and Roberto answered and promised to be there in 5 minutes to open the gallery just for us on a Saturday night! After walking into the gallery, we could immediately notice the incredible pieces of art, but even more so, the warming, modest, welcoming personality of Roberto. He greeted us to the gallery and let us explore as you would want to explore in a art gallery. No rush, no pressure to buy, what we felt was his thankfulness for appreciating his work. After sometime at the galley, my wife and I fell in love with 2 of the paintings. We decided to purchase 1 large piece, but felt we can’t miss the opportunity to own 2 paintings of the artists. Roberto made a fair offer for us to buy the 2nd painting, and as other suggested in the reviews, we purchased 2 paintings to take back to our home in NYC. We left our shipping information, a credit card number for billing the shipping costs, and left thinking how great it is to own paintings of Roberto and the team, but even more so, how lucky we were to meet Roberto. About 4 weeks later, we received the painting in NYC. The painting were packed professionally, clean, and they even put hanging rings for us. We could not imagine a better memory from our visit in Florence. Thank you!
