The Palace is right in the middle between Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Pitti. Its construction in the 1950s was the work of the famous architect Giovanni Michelucci, a figure of great importance in modern, Italian, and international architecture of the 1900s.
The style of the building is considered a successful example of the insertion of modern architecture in an urban context of high historical value.
All this is evident from many technical construction details of the building (the stone cladding, the large Florentine-style roof) and, above all, from the cutting of the apartments and commercial funds inspired by the fascinating house-workshop relationship of the medieval tradition.
Even today, in the 165 square meters of this large apartment, it is re-proposed the ancient functional distribution of the interior spaces on two separate levels (the first one once dedicated to working (artisan or commercial) and the second one to private residential use).
The two levels are large, open, and bright.
On the first level:
- entrance and large bright living room with great views,
On the second level:
- two large double bedrooms
- two bathrooms
The style of the interiors, the choice of finishes, and furniture are in total harmony with the construction style of the time. The result of the reinterpretation is of great style and elegance.
The apartment is on the third floor and has a lift.
A cellar on the ground floor completes the property.
Equipment of the apartment.
- Independent heating system
- Double glazing
- Air conditioning
The apartment has south-east-facing balconies overlooking Guicciardini street, a road connecting two magnificent places in the historic City, such as Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Pitti. It is a privileged position in the Oltrarno district that allows you to enjoy the atmosphere of Renaissance Florence from your windows.
Even the views to the west allow pleasant views of historical characters, such as a tower house of the thirteenth century and a lovely small internal square, Piazzetta Dello Sprone. Recently redeveloped and donated to the City, it has become a space open to all to enhance children’s cultural, musical, and high craftsmanship projects and workshops. A small oasis where you can enjoy a pleasant stop just a stone’s throw from Ponte Vecchio and Piazza Della Passera.
