La Camerata Fiorentina

From $ 1.338 per night

Description

La Camerata Fiorentina is a luxury apartment for rent in Florence right inside the antique and elegant Palazzo Bardi, built in 1420 by Brunelleschi, located in via dé Benci 5. It is set right between the Arno river, the Uffizi Gallery and Santa Croce.

This Palazzo is considered the model that represents the beginning of Renaissance architecture in Florence.

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 name of the apartment is due to the fact that in the 16th century 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 is the cine-camera used at that time.
La Camerata Fiorentina is located at the Piano Nobile (first floor, second American, no lift). It is 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 is 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 the place a very special atmosphere in the evening.

Getting There: The apartment is located on via de' Benci, a wonderful cobblestone street, which forms part of the Santa Croce district on the eastern edge of Florence’s historic city centre. The area takes its name from one of the city’s most remarkable churches. The Santa Croce neighbourhood provides a rare glimpse of “old” Florence with lively markets and tiny leather and artisan workshops, including the flea market (Mercato delle Pulci) at Piazza dei Ciompi. The Mercato St. Ambrogio, the city’s second main food market after the Mercato San Lorenzo, is within close walking distance too. Furthermore, the area is just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s main cultural attractions such as the Bargello Palace, which houses one of Italy’s most important museums, the Casa Buonarroti, (the former home of Michelangelo), Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio, not forgetting the magnificent Santa Croce church and museum. You will also enjoy the largest selection of boutique shops, bars and typical restaurants and pizzerias within the city. Three of the finest and most expensive restaurants, Cibreo, Pinchiorri and Alle Murate are located nearby. There is also a good choice of mid-priced options. By night, Santa Croce becomes one of the liveliest parts of town and with its pedestrianised streets and illuminated buildings it transforms into the perfect venue for an after-dinner glass of wine or evening stroll. For those choosing an apartment in this area Santa Croce offers several food stores, supermarkets, laundrettes and individual gift shops as well as being adequately served by the local public transport service.
