In the never ending retail merry-go-round that is Florence, with stores moving, closing and/or opening seemingly every day, a very quick change has just taken place. The Sergio Rossi boutique that was on Via Tornabuoni has now moved right into Piazza Santa Trinita, on the ground floor of the 15th century Palazzo Buondelmonti (just outside the north side of the Ferragamo store/museum).
The new space shares the ground floor with the newish café Isabelle, making the whole ground floor of this palazzo commercial space.
The whole piazza as well as Via Tornabuoni have just been resurfaced (there is still some construction going on - but this should be done soon) - and the square has never looked better since I have been here: it is now sporting giant terra cotta pots full of flowering plants, and of course is also pedestrian only (except for taxis, etc.).
