    I am trying to find the web site of a florence novelty shop which sold resin / brass statues of roman chariot.
    Address was via della Condotta, Florence.
    Anyone know?

    1. Krista

      Hi Paul! I’m not sure what shop that would be but next time I’m in via Condotta I’ll take a look to see if I notice anything like that

      1. Paul Morris

        The name of the shop, sorry, was Re Nero.
        I am trying to find its website, without luck!

        Regards

        Paul

          Hi Paul – I don’t think they have a website, but here’s the Google+ page with phone number. Maybe you could Skype call if you’re not in Italy?

          Hi Paul, we too are trying to contact the store manager of Re Nero. May I ask if you had any luck reaching him or obtaining an email address?
