WORDS, WORDS, WORDS and a few glimpses of a calligraphy workshop we held last winter that focused on Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s poetry where kids, parents and grandparents wrote, drew fragments of poems from a hat and dreamed at Sopr’Arno Suites B&B with its owner and calligrapher/graphic designer, Betty Soldi.

Enjoy a few images below and a recipe provided by food writer and cookbook author, Giulia Scarpaleggia, provided in the link of the delicious “Quaresimali” letter shaped cookies you see towards the end here. They are made only during the time of Lent in Florence, so if you see them during that time it’s hard to not try one or two!
