New article in the NY Times this morning about the arts scene in the Oltrarno:

The artists were performing for an event at Spazio Arti e Mestieri, or SAM, which opened in April. While traditional artisans are struggling in the current economic climate, organizations like SAM are trying to bring the sector into the 21st century, tapping into a growing community of artists, designers and boutique owners who have flocked to the Oltrarno, a tightly packed neighborhood that has long personified the darker and grittier side of the city.

Worth a read.
