Church of Santo Spirito

AN ART SHELTER IN THE HEART OF FLORENCE

The Church of Santo Spirito can be found in the beating heart of Florence, as well known to locals as it is unknown to the fleeting glances of tourists: once you cross the worn wooden threshold, you enter a place full of memories.

The church, built in the 1400s, houses 14th-century frescoes and valuable works of art; but what amazes the most once you enter is the peaceful atmosphere, a soft light filtering through the stained glass windows embracing the interior. The silence gets broken only by the rustling of pages and the echo of footsteps on the stone floor.

You can sit on a bench, letting your eyes glide over the lived-in frescoes, savouring the beauty of details that have survived the passage of time, or take a glance at the altar, for a quick but intimate farewell to a place that is part of people's everyday life.

The courtyard, with its pointed arches, offers moments of absolute peace: while outside the city roars by, here the only footsteps of the students of the adjoining high school resound on the pavement, with a slow rhythm, from another era, that transforms every visit into a moment of meditation. The atmosphere is just like in a monastery, where one can forget the world for a moment and discover the force of silence.

Santo Spirito is 'THE' church of the Florentines, but it captures the heart of anyone who enters it with its shy beauty, made up of small details and stolen moments of ordinary life, which remains engraved in the memory.
