Vittoria Scaffidi

Vittoria is a Florentine artist whose watercolours instantly stood out in a city full of wonderful watercolour artists. In part due to the sometimes darker colours she uses, but also the outline/coloured look, where the image often leaves the ‘frame.’

She can be found in Piazza Pitti, Florence, and it’s definitely worth visiting her if you’re travelling. The piece my wife and I purchased was of the Duomo visible behind the Ponte Vecchio, it drew our attention from across the street – I’ll try and upload an image later. In the meantime, here’s a link to what might be her old website (hopefully it still works) where you can see work that is similar to the piece we have:

And a link to a interview/profile about her at Clever Magazine. The interview is a few years old, but has some great information in it. I’ve actually come across a few travellers who’ve mentioned Vittoria on blogs after visiting Florence, which is great to see. I’d definitely buy another piece of hers without hesitation.
