La Pintadera is quickly becoming an anchor store on the newly revitalized Via XXX Ottobre. Just kitty-corner from the gorgeous fruttivendolo TRIESTE FUNGHI, it is another oasis of color, fragrances and beauty.
While primarily a florist offering both fresh cut and potted plants and flowers, the shop is also part home store, art and jewlery shop featuring one of a kind pieces.
This shop, owned by Laura Longo, is filled with her creations; paintings, floral compositions, succulents, bouquets and also Celt inspired jewelry, bookmarks, necklaces made with light-weight, hypo-allergenic aluminum.
A student of some of the most important floral designers and innovators; Thomas de Bruyne (member of lifethree, a group of world famous flowers designers), Marc Mignon (French floral design), Britta Kroggel (floral design and German stylist photo), and Yasuko Oki (experimental course with Japanese techniques), Longo’s creations are instantly recognizable and captivating. She has won several national and international floral art competitions.
“In (my) many years of experimenting with flowers, natural materials and many different techniques, I have always tried to perfect the shape and sensation that I want to convey.
Emotions are very important to me… everything I create transmits the strength and spirituality inherent in nature.”
While you should not miss an opportunity to visit this delightful shop, Laura has recently launched an e-commerce site due to the Covid-Crisis so that you can still buy, share and enjoy her unique creations via online purchase.
