The highly anticipated World Superyacht Awards 2018 are set to take place in Florence for the final time in May. This beautiful city is famous the world over for its rich history of art, architecture and creativity but did you also know it is home to some of the industry’s top superyacht designers? Here Luca Dini, Francesco Paszkowski and Tommaso Spadolini take us on a virtual tour of their favourite Florentine cultural landmarks and explain how the city provides endless inspiration for their work.

Luca Dini Design

“In Florence there are so many beautiful places and art works that can be a source of inspiration, not only for architects or art enthusiasts, but for anybody. It is common practice for Florentine children to visit museums and historic buildings on school tours. Over the years, all this art becomes part of you and stays with you forever; to walk around the city among the many monuments allows you to have a continued, daily relationship with beauty, formal perfection and culture.

Florence is a cradle of art and to live in it day by day can only help us in our work. Personally I see these masterpieces not as distant icons and an end in themselves, but as an important part of my work and my life. When I begin a new project they come naturally to my mind as points of reference.”
