^Wine 'bar' from the past! Idea for patio wall^ One of my favorite peculiarities about #Florence remain these small wine portals, 'buchette del vino' which are unique to Florentine architecture. Used in the Renaissance period by wealthy nobles selling off their wine surplus to local citizens (only between certain hours, regulated by the comune), these little slots are still visible all over the city, often converted to mail-slots and doorbell posts.
