Villa degli Arazzi – Rome

12 Bedrooms / Suites- Spa

Gabriella Rasponi, widow of Count Venceslao Spalletti Trivelli, Senator of the Kingdom, niece of Gioacchino Murat and Carolina Bonaparte (Napoleon’s sister), purchased the land in front of the gardens of the Quirinale, where the house of Tito Pomponio Attico, editor and friend of Cicero, was located and entrusted the task of building Villa degli Arazzi to Architect Domenico Avenali (who used the help of various artists and artisans, like Edoardo Gioja). Thanks to the intelligent awareness of Countess Rasponi, President of the National Council of Italian Women, Villa degli Arazzi becomes an important political and cultural masterpiece. Every Thursday afternoon, the villa's drawing rooms were filled with important people of the time, including Romualdo Bonfaldini, Sidney Sonnino and Rabindranath Tagore, the Nobel prize winner for literature in 1913. At the beginning of the 1930s, Cesare Spalletti Trivelli inherited a historic residence in downtown Rome from his mother where he lived with his wife, Contessa Guendalina Cavazzi della Somaglia. Appointed Sir and Lady of the Court of Queen Maria Josè of Belgium, wife of Umberto II of Savoia, the last King of Italy, the count and countess left the Villa to their son, Piero, a writer and poet. In 2004, Giangiacomo Spalletti Trivelli, son of Count Piero, and his wife, Susanna, daughter of the horseback riding champion, Raimondo d'Inzeo, decided to convert the family's historic residence into an exclusive luxury residence for the most refined and demanding travelers. After three years of restorations thanks to the help of Architect Piero Alessandrini, Villa degli Arazzi became a unique and exclusive hotel in the historic center of Rome, where the Spalletti Trivelli family's passion for history, culture and art along with the most modern technologies put the Villa on the same scale as a luxury hotel, avant-garde for its comfort and amenities.

There is nothing comparable to the beauty of the Roman skyline, from the sweet inclination of the various rooftops and the sinuous and vivacious curves of the the mountains that confines them...from a letter by Francois-Renè de Chateaubriand to Marchese di Fontanes, 1804.
