The Florentine Press is the voice of the English-speaking community in Florence. Our writers have chosen Florence out of passion and they write about whatever has inspired them in Florence, Tuscany and beyond. As they discover hidden aspects of the city and its art, battle with language and culture, or taste new flavors in the kitchen, their experiences represent unifying elements of conversation for the expat community but new points of view for Italian residents.

Our books often grow out of the most successful columns in The Florentine newspaper, in which our writers present visions of all aspects of Florentine life. The large expat community is synonymous with The Florentine Family, a strong social group that, while not always homogenous or physically united, finds common ground in the experiences recounted in the news-magazine and books published by The Florentine Group.
