The neighborhood of Santo Spirito, which together with San Frediano hosts antique dealers and the finest craftsmen in Florence is certainly full of charm, just as the Olivastri shop is, where the craftsmen restore works in wood, antique furniture and inlaid pieces as well as frames, candlesticks, polychrome statues and paintings on wood.
