Since it was founded in Florence in 1985, Mandragora has been specialising in the management of museum bookshops and events. The competence and expertise shown in this field has led to fruitful working relationships with a large number of the city’s institutions.
In the Florentine cathedral complex Mandragora now runs the bookshops of the Crypt of Santa Reparata, Giotto’s Campanile and the Opera di Santa Maria del Fiore Museum. To these have been added Palazzo Medici Riccardi and Agora|Z design and bookstore in the court of Palazzo Strozzi.
Our new headquarters in Via Capo di Mondo
We designed our new venue as more than a workplace, because we wanted to support new activities, exhibitions, small events and the chance to meet with our friends.
The project by architect Claudio Nardi transforms the layout of an existing building to create a new space, a concise balance between volumes, materials and innovative technologies.
Great attention has been paid to the environment, thanks to state-of-the-art building automation.
