In 1877 a section of the sizeable Anglican community of Florence detached itself from the congregation of Holy Trinity (the city’s first Anglican Church), which it found too “low”, and established itself in new premises in Via de’ Serragli. In 1880 the new Anglican Church of St. Mark moved to Via Maggio, to a palazzo thought to have been owned by Niccolo Machiavelli.
The reverend Charles Tooth, who had masterminded the secession and helped to design the new church, was the incumbent from 1881. In 1906 it was enlarged by the purchase of an adjoining property. The neo-renaissance interior is decorated in Pre-Raphaelite fashion, and in the English taste.
This is a unique setting much more intimate than the usual Opera Theatre for a truly face to face experience with the Arias.
