I Marmi Apartment - Florence

3 Double bedrooms

Palazzo Bardi was built in 1420 by Brunelleschi. It is located in via dé Benci, between the Arno river, the Uffizi Gallery and Santa Croce. The building is considered the first step towards a new model of private Renaissance palace  in Florence, changing the late gothic architecture. The courtyard of the palazzo is decorated with Andrea della Robbia majolicas, a crown of big columns typical of Brunelleschi’s style, antique marbles and precious Renaissance ironworks. The Palazzo’s major restoration was completed in 2012 and it’s now in mint conditions. Residents (8 in total) are mainly British or Americans. English speaking porter and security video system ensure the best security and privacy.

 

The Apartment – Where the Opera started (14th of January 1573).

The apartment in the 16th century hosted the “Camerata Fiorentina” used to meet in this apartment, which was the palazzo’s theatre during the Reinassance. The Florentine Camerata was a group of scientists and constituted by the Bardi Count and other scholars of musical theory, among whom was Vincenzo Galilei, father of Galileo. They created new musical principles, merging music to the 33rd “Canto” of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, giving birth to what is known now as Lyrical Opera. Still hanging from the ceiling of the theatre are the scenic machinery used at that time.

 

I Marmi Apartment is located at the Piano Nobile (first floor, second American, no lift). It is a 320 sq. meters (3.400 sq. ft.) apartment on two levels.

The décor is a combination of the finest contemporary Italian design and Florentine ‘500 architectural detail. The interiors are superbly decorated with original plaster works, stones and 18th century frescoes. Bauhaus period furniture are from the best designers: Van der Rohe, Eames, Le Corbusier, matching a precious 17th century sofa and two Medieval terracotta statues. Castiglioni, Flos and Fontanarte lighting gives to the place a very special atmosphere in the evening.
