A selection of black and white of photographic prints from Costantino Ruspoli’s extensive photographic campaign in Florence, presented a passionate portrayal of the city from a bygone era. He photographed the city from his past with his memories of a time when it was not overrun with tourists, when the pizza parlours were artisan workshops.
