Like Alice who loses herself in Wonderland and falls under its enchanted spell, even in fairytale-like and romantic Boboli Gardens we can experience the same amazement. Here, just outside one of the entrances of the most famous gardens in Italy, which houses the history of Florence, is Giovanna’s home, where we can enjoy a beautiful view of the city.

Our Cesarina has always loved to cook. As a child, it was a game, as a young woman, a hobby. Now, it is a way for her to care for her family and to create moments of joy around the table with friends and relatives. Giovanna spends most of her day organizing meals, looking to buy quality products to prepare healthy dishes without, however, sacrificing the pleasure and richness of good Italian and Tuscan recipes.
