Mark Abouzeid collaborated with reknowned anthropologist, Anna Rastrelli, to realize a history of Florence’s Oltarno.

 

Il Palazzo Capponi

Gli Ori

The large format, coffee table book includes over 100 photos from Abouzeid as well as never before seen historical reprints.

“What follows if the history of Palazzo Capponi embedded in the history of Florence itself.  The story of this one building encompasses the stories of the family that built it and used it, and of the quartiere of Santo Spirito, where it is located.  The story begins long ago, with the foundation of the city.”
