Meet your host, Maria Cristina

Host on Airbnb since 2014
  • Identity verified
I left my career as an anthropologist working in NGO to co-create with my daughter an artisanal and fashion laboratory in the heart of Florence.
It was one of my dreams to come back to be a stylist and teach what I have learn in all my career, as an anthropologist and costumist. In the 80's I've worked with all the big names of the Italian fashion industry, and with the theatre companies, and then passing years studying sociology and anthropology to understand what there is behind fashion and mode.
One of my first goals? Creating a brand that links the fashion with an anthropological side.
