  • L'italie version Bohème d'entrée, avec un ramassage à l'aéroport (20€) par Gabriga dans son vieux fourgon qui vous met dans l'ambiance tout de suite... Rien à dire sur la disponibilité, l'attention et la gentiesse de Gabriga. L'appartement est dans le style atelier d'artiste, donc assez bordélique mais au bon sens du terme. Bien sur, ceux qui sont habitués à de l'hotellerie 4*, des salles de bain flambant neuves et allergiques à quelques recoins poussiéreux devront passer leur tour, mais pour le reste, c'est conforme aux attentes et la literie est propre. Attention, la chambre en mezzanine a leur lit en haut, donc il y fait un peu chaud...

  • Gabrigas apartment was in a great location, easy to get to from campo di marte station on foot. He was a helpful host, giving us maps and directions the first night. He has a very interesting apartment with tons of great artwork. We stayed in the loft room (email hidden), which was definitely necessary. We still needed up getting quite a few bites, but other than that it was great.

  • Thanks Gabriga!
    We felt like home.. Easy approach and confortable room.
    Good luck for your artistic life!

  • This is a fantastic home which is so convenient to the old city and just a few minutes away from the train station and two minutes to the bus stop. It was situated so well and is a gorgeous apartment with high ceilings and in a great neighbourhood. I stayed in the loft room which had a lovely balcony looking out on to the picturesque old city skyline including some of the church domes. Bed upstairs and study down was a fantastic room.

    What made this such an incredible stay was Gabriga and his fantastic care for all his guests. Like other reviews have written, Gabriga goes out of his way to help, whether ringing and booking museum tickets, giving local restaurant recommendations, preparing breakfasts all hours of the morning for his different guests.

    In my case, I had initially got confused with the local trains and Gabriga waited for me for a very long time at his train station to ensure that I got to his place safely. That is the kind of care he shows to all his guests. He has such a warm and engaging character, he immediately puts you at ease.

    Also, most amazingly on my last day in Florence, Gabriga and his girlfriend arranged to take me on a local tour of places outside of Florence. We had such a lovely time and shared many great conversations. The memories are wonderful and I am so happy to make two new friends. Gracie Gabriga and V!

    If you are looking to experience local culture and meet local people while visiting Florence and you want to stay with a host who is very warm and welcoming, then I would highly recommend that you stay with Gabriga in his home. His work around his home is fantastic also!

  • Gabriga was a great host and his place is very spacious and creative. As other users have mentioned definitely join him for dinner if the opportunity is there! I would definitely recommend staying here.

  • This was the best AirBnB experience I've had to date. It was perfect. Gorgeous clean big room in a gorgeous loft, the right balance between private space and comraderie over breakfast and home-cooked dinners, with lovely friendly interesting and accommodating hosts. It's in great location - close to the center but out of the hustle and bustle of the tourist zone.I stayed a week, and would have stayed longer if Gabriga's home wasn't booked. If you stay here, you're guaranteed a a fabulous Florentine experience! Thank you Gabriga for the hospitality!

    Response from Gabriga:

    I am very happy that your experience in artist's house was beautiful, as it was nice for us to have you host. You're one of those hosts who make your mark and establishes a relationship that lasts into the future. So we hope to see you again soon!
    A wish for your trip to Europe is just as nice!

  • I found Gabriga to be a kind, intelligent and generous host. In addition, he is a good cook. So have dinner with him a couple of times. He has a good knowledge of the city and can direct you to your interests. The apartment is a nice 15 minute walk to the Duomo. Not to far but far enough away from the bustle of the center of town. Its quiet and spacious. My bed was comfortable, and I felt at home quickly. All of which allowed me to get the rest I needed to have another great day in Firenze. Thank you Gabriga and good luck.

  • Staying with Gabriga at his flat was an unforgettable experience!

    He was very catering & gave us an clear overview of the remarkable city. Florence is truly an amazing place.

    The room was clean & spacious. The breakfast with fresh fruit, toast, tea & espresso is a perfect way to start one's voyage through the city.

  • The place is nice, the location is great, but experience was pretty frustrating because of the host. first of all, there was no ac, and there never had been, even though it was advertised as such. if there is ac advertised, its not true! he removed the amenity once we had booked the place, we actually confirmed this with airbnb. also, it said that there was use of washer and drier, but the host was very mad at me for wanting to do my wash and said that i have to wash my stuff by hand. there was a double bed and a single pull out bed, (chair) which i used becuse of the lack of ac. this made him very angry and he told me that i owe him 10 eu for that. one more thing is that he claimed that we owed him 50 more eu because we had a second occupant, (my son) but we had booked with 2 already. he said that this was his mistake when listing the place. when we contacted airbnb in complaint, they said that that kind of transaction was not allowed, so we didn't pay it. also there is no use in the kitchen (as he said in description) but its so strict that he might as well remove it from the amenity list.

Isia design
artista visivo indipendente
Artista visivo. Lavora nel campo della scenografia teatrale. Realizza servizi fotografici per il teatro di ricerca. Nell'arte visiva è solito realizzare installazioni interattive. Ha realizzato scene per teatro, danza, lirica ed installazioni in Italia e all'estero. CURRICULUM Gabriele Pellegrini, born 1959 in Ruvo, Bari, has lived and worked in Florence since 1979 where he attended l’ISIA, l’istituto Superiore per l’Industrial Design. He graduated with a thesis entitled, “The World of Packaging: Predesign for a Project on Business Communication within the System of Mass Communication” Rather than the “logical” immobility of industrial design, he prefers the risk and freedom of the design of theatrical scenography. From (phone number hidden) he worked with architect and set designer Stefani Battaglia. Together, they designed scenography and costumes for theater and dance, multivision works, installations, and video installations, collaborating with companies and organizations of national and international importance. At the same time, he has continued his personal research on the phenomenology of perception using the photographic language, but not exclusively; his first exhibition is already an installation. He creates combinations particularly agreeable with his “multimedia expressiveness,” achieved with his work in photographic installations in both natural and developed locations. For ten years he has also worked with photography of scenography. Especially active and appreciated his theatric experimentations, he has photographed for Socíetas Faffaello Sanzio (Cesena) which has recently published a photographic book Epitaph that contains images of the company’s productions for the last twenty years, Fabbrica Europa (Firenze), Fondazinoe Sipario Toscana (Cascina), Teatro delle Donne (Firenze), Kripton (Scandicci), Opera Giovani in Europa di Aldo Tarabella, La fabbrica dell’Attore (Roma), La Zattera di Babele (Roma), Simone Carella (Roma), Sylvano Bussotti (Firenze), Luigi Cinque (Roma), Compagnia Virgilio Sieni (Firenze), Compagnia Marinella Salerno (Firenze), Associazione Culturale Danza Arbus (Firenze), Balleto di Toscana (Firenze), Pino Minafra (Ruvo), Alcatel (Milano), Teatro della (Limonaia Sesto Fiorentino), Tempo Reale (Firenze), etc. Both his photographs for these companies and those of his installations have been published in visual art, dance and theater books as well as in Italian and foreign newspapers. Visual Arts The first installation, EPILOGO-Fotofonie, (each image was given its own sound), was presented in 1993 in Florence at the Galleria Container and in 1994 in Prato at the Galleria Dry Photo in and again in Florence for Ecosfera at the Fortezza da Basso. The installation, on the subject of environmental pollution, presented the images and sounds of the debris of our daily consumption: “sopravvivenze di oggetti disperse sui bordi della terraferma, quasi escrescenze biologiche, prossimi all’armonia nell’angusto ritaglio dello spazio” (website hidden)_XizkmgysQ&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL The second installation, ARITIMIE-Fotofonie, was presented in Ruvo, Puglia in the field of Talos Festival ’95: “La melodia-la ricerca-la follia.” It was also presented in Florence at Stazione Leopolda for Fabbrica Europa ’95: “Il disordine delle arti.” The works in the Aritimie series were also displayed in the gallery “La mente e l’immagine di Roma,” and at “Cardillac” in Florence. “ARTIMIE” involves itself in the idea of visual, contemporary pollution from a propagandist system geared toward “the masses” to the universal languages of advertisement communication written and transferred via products. The result achieved over the course of fifty years of “excess” and “hammering” for the erasure of different sociological, ethnic and religious realities has brought about a vertical drop in the quality of the sign and the degradation of cultural identity. The works are born of the study of common packaging. In the research, the sign of artificial materials is set against the signs of natural elements that become, today each in turn, “products of mass consumption.” Through “mental” manipulation and the repetitive speculation of images, the “insignificant coded” becomes the “significant uncoded,” stimulating those processes tendentiously favorable for the recovery of the truly imaginary. (website hidden) For ‘Apre’ in February 2000 (the first Florentine exhibition dedicated to ecological and biotechnological problems) at Stazione Leopolda in Florence, he installed on a steel wall six meters high and twelve meters long a series of recent, large-scale works, resulting from research on photography and digital pictures, a preview of the interactive installation project “Corpi. Sembianze del Tempo.” The works of the series “Corpi. Sembianze del Tempo” intensify the already commonly-held certitude of the invasion of the artificial into the depths of the body. This invasion is, in one sense, having to put up with violence, and in another sense like a gift of membership to the system through the manipulation of the flesh and mind. Bodies. At the end, identity is always in suspension. Under the investigation of the stare, recorded, in the attempt to find the threshold and go beyond the common place of representation. The works open, therefore, at the visionary crossroads that occupy the space of memory and divination. In February 2001 in Bari, at Teatro Kismet OperA he presents a photographic retrospective dedicated to Societas Raffaello Sanzio entitled “Corpi.” The suggested images are digitally enhanced photographs that come from the photographs taken during the representations of “Amleto, Orestea, Giulio Cesare, Voyage au bout de la nuit, Genesi, Il Combattimento.” In Prato, the exhibit becomes an installation that creates an interaction between the works dedicated to “Corpi” for Raffaello Sanzio with “Corpi contrafatti” of some of his recent digital work and takes advantage of the atmosphere and the sliding hooks on the snaking platforms of the butcher’s workrooms in the ex-butchery, now Cantieri Culturali dell’Officina Giovani. The project was created in collaboration with l’Assessorato alla Cultura and Teatro Metastasio (from March 14 through April 8, 2001). In Florence, for Fabbrica Europa 2002 mito d’Europa e identitá contemporanea, his installation exhibition entitled “La voix du corps” viaggio nel mondo della Socíetas Raffaello Sanzio was unveiled in the main aisle of Stazione Leopolda. It presents on an inclined stage a series of other new works.
