My personal archive

Francesca Pazzagli, with her intense gaze and creative soul, is an architect. She is one of the minds behind Archivio Personale

Francesca Pazzagli

Francesca, who and what make up your Archivio Personale?

An extended family made up of professionals who come from the worlds of creativity. An all-female collection of work and life experiences.

A short list of places that fill your archive.

The Parco della Limonaia at Villa Strozzi in springtime, the Circondale Rondinella del Torrino on the Santa Rosa Lungarno, the Specola Museum, lunch at TODO MODO, shopping in Sant’Ambrogio, with lunch at one o’clock at Rocco, and fresh flowers from the little market in Piazza Santo Spirito.

Beauty is...

That process that cannot be seen, that is hidden. The beauty that hides strength.

The projects that have made you proudest in your work?

The important partnership we have Toiletpaper, Maurizio Cattelan’s and Pierpaolo Ferrari’s magazine. What makes us even prouder, though, is working in our city, Florence. 

Three things you love to do 

Have breakfast, really early, alone, reading a book, walking in the mountains in the summer, travelling around Italy not only to see concerts and listen to good music.

A book, film, dish and architectural work that speak to you.

Exploits and Opinions of Dr. Faustroll, Pataphysician, My Uncle, by Jacques Tati. Dish: rice and a design object, the mirror Ultrafragola by Ettore Sottsass.
