Interview with Martino di Napoli Rampolla: Numeroventi
Are you ready for an extraordinary getaway in Florence? Or are you happened to be an artist looking for a heartening artist residency program? We might have an option for both. Numeroventi aims to provide an inspiring shelter to artists and creative professionals looking for a mental and physical space to develop their projects. The contrast between the history of the building and its vibrant new occupancy is reflected in Florence itself; a city that is a living testament to the astonishing achievements of the Renaissance while also striving to be young, creative, and forward-looking. We've sat down with Martino, the visionary founder behind Numeroventi to discuss his vision and initial idea of Numeroventi. " I wanted to create a place that would aim to act as a retreat, as a place where creatives can rediscover the core of their profession. That would invite them to break out from routines and be inspired; by other people, by the space—actually, in many different ways. Of course, every individual comes here with different needs and expectations, but they all seek the possibility to recharge creatively." In search of a true recharge whether you're an artist and a traveller, Numeroventi shall be your number one destination.

Around the Planet w/ PetersPlanet
It was one of those far-between days to find Péter Szűcs, our friend in Budapest, despite his globetrotter lifestyle to sit down for a coffee and talk about his recent travels from India through Belarus to the Maldives. Peter's history goes long back in traveling, so it's no surprise that he dedicated an online platform called PetersPlanet to sharing travel experiences; stories of real off-the-grid places, local people and exciting cultural insiders. Peter is the kind of traveler who doesn't mind taking the road less travelled, on the contrary, he seeks for those. Hence PetersPlanet is for those who appreciate both quality and adventure; travellers, who tend to hunt places beyond maps and aiming for one-off destinations with their minds wide open. PetersPlanet offers an insight through genuine experience; a real dip in different cultures in order to truly experience one culture at its deepest and to live the locals’ life. It’s not only the location, but the attitude of the people, the noise of the city, the smell of rural areas, the flavour of the meal that contributes to a whole experience. This are the kind of hotspots Peter has collected you on his Local's Lore maps.
