It feels like only yesterday that Florence’s oldest bookstore closed its doors at borgo Ognissanti 4/r. Now, a new American-inspired business has taken over the space. A coast-to-coast trip from New York to Malibu provided the impetus Costanza Fontani needed to open Maniboo, a nail bar inspired by California. Extended evening opening hours, drop-in manicures and pedicures, and a make-up service are on offer at this beautifully groomed beauty parlor. Relax, unwind and make new friends: the pretty pink, sweetly sophisticated salon is set to become a social hub this spring.
