Nardia Plumridge is an Australian writer who did what many of us dream to do – pack up and move to Italy. After living in London for ten years, the lure of Italy, a country she discovered in her teens, still stuck and she spent the fall of 2010 immersed in la dolce vita in her favourite city, Florence. Those few months turned into years during which she launched the website, Lost in Florence, to celebrate the independent artisans of the city she had met and admired, those keeping the traditions of craftsmanship alive with a modern twist. The website has featured in Lonely Planet and Forbes, among other notable publications, and recently made into a book by renowned lifestyle publisher, Hardie Grant; it is being translated into Italian for a spring 2020 release by the respected Italian publisher, Giunti Editore.
