Fashion brand, Gucci stunned visitors of the Pitti Uomo Trade Fair when it unveiled its enchanting Gucci Garden this weekend at the heart of Florence, Italy. The building which has a neon-pink eye as the Gucci Garden logo was originally built in 1337 before it was renovated in 2011 by Gucci Museo.

The cultural building is a reflection of the renaissance movement of Gucci.

The building consists of a boutique, a galleria, and a 50-seat osteria.

The ground and second floors are filled with special artifacts and pieces for sale. Some of these fashion pieces are limited edition denim jackets with animal illustrations; bespoke chairs, silk jackets, plates, and candles. Almost all of these pieces have an inscription of the Gucci Garden logo.

The osteria across the stairs is occupied by Italian- Michelin-star chef Massimo Bottura. His menu includes international classic recipes from Japan to Italy.
The Gucci Garden Galleria puts the sale of its tickets at 8 euros while the price for dishes ranges from 20 to 30 euros.
