World class 3 bedroom Florence Apartment
Florence Apartments Apartment 6
The apartment is located in Palazzo Bardi, which was built in 1420 by Brunelleschi and was just restored in 2012. It is located between the Arno River, the Uffizi Gallery and Piazza 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 gests it's name from when it was bought by Cosimo de Medici for his wife Contessina de Bardi.
In the 16th century the Camerata Fiorentina used to meet in this apartment, which was the palazzo’s theatre during the Renaissance. The Florentine Camerata created new musical principles, merging music to the 33rd Canto of Dante Alighieri’s Inferno, giving birth to what is now known as Lyrical Opera. Still hanging from the ceiling of the theater are the scenic machinery used at that time.
The palazzo's major restoration was completed in 2012 and is now in mint condition. There are eight residences in the building, with an English speaking porter and security video system to ensure security and privacy.
Firenze Uno is located on the Piano Nobile (second floor) and is a two level apartment that measures 3,400 sq. ft.
