This unique propriety reunites the exquisite aesthetics
of Renaissance architecture with the work of glamour
architect Anna Conti, whose masterly use of glass has
produced a fantastic space, where culture ,
fashion and exclusive public meet. The unique blend of aesthetics ,
acoustics, light and romance is such that during the Pitti Fashion
events designers rent our piace for their exclusive events,
while during the Maggio Musicale opera season, we host musical
events for a restricted public in our patio (which has excellent acoustics).
The view ofltaly's sky is unobstructed through the three levels ofthe building,
and at night you can look at the stars from the comfort ofthe arched patio-and maybe
switch offthe lights to dance in the moonlight. At the far comers ofthe patio
are the stairs leading to the two upper floor apartments an d the 15 O sq meters
sun roof. At the touch of a button, the center ofthe glass terrace lifts to let
in the fresh air perfumed by the plants on the roof garden.
On the apposite side ofthe patio, is a mini flat with bedroom and bathroom.
Below the patio, covered by the glass floor are the rooms (120 sq meters)
ofwhat now is the architect's studio-and which has now been authorized by
official permit to become a swimming pool cum sauna and Turkish bath should
the new owner so desire. And it is enough to walk out into the street to be
at the very heart ofthe City of Florence-Piazza del Duomo, the gate way to the city.
art, fashion,-Florence's museums, monuments, shopping, historic streets and
business are all around you!
