At the Polaroid Tour you'll explore the beauties of Florence, creating family memories that will last forever. At the beginning, you'll receive the Polaroid Cameras, the color films and I'll quickly show you how to use them. Together with cameras and films, I'll provide colorful balloons and soap bubbles for your smaller kids as fun props to make the walk even cooler! We'll stroll through the city center, exploring narrow streets, hidden squares and picture-perfect spots. I'll share with you tricks that will make Polaroid shooting easy and fun. One of the aim of the Tour is to boost the kids creativity and make the walk engaging and fun for the whole family. You'll learn peculiar stories about the places we visit, that will be inspiring for you to choose which memories to fix on Polaroid. Through your pictures, you will capture the local atmosphere and you'll create your one-of-a-kind souvenirs. We'll explore the San Lorenzo district, Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza della Signoria, Pontevecchio, Piazza della Passera, Santo Spirito neighborhood and many other spots that will surprise you! We'll take a break in a lovely square with a cup of one of the best artisanal gelato on the planet! The kids will be entertained and you'll get through the local atmosphere in a truly unique way. Plus, you'll create family memories while having fun through the streets of Florence.
I work as a freelance videomaker and video creator for local businesses in Tuscany. Telling stories through photos and videos has always fascinated me. I love analog experiences, such as instant photography. In 2012 I found an old Polaroid camera in a dusty garage. Since then I captured memories into thousands of Polaroids, shooting with every kind of instant film and camera, taking part on International Instant Photo Exhibitions and spreading the Polaroid word through many photo events in Tuscany. In 2016 I launched a successful online petition on Change.org, called "Save Instant Film", reaching 27k signatures and that helped to find a viable future for "Packfilm", the discontinued type of film. Polaroid and storytelling is a great match and it describes me perfectly. I mixed the words into @polastories, my own, tiny room on Instagram
