              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: I am an artist and an educator, living in New York City. I currently teach at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and I exhibit my work nationally and internationally. I studied painting in Florence and then lived there for many years. Mi sento a casa in Italia!

              Why the Owner Chose Santo Spirito:
              I am an artist and I studied painting in Florence. It is my home away from home after having lived there for many years. Santo Spirito is my favorite neighborhood in Florence. I love how authentic it is--buying veggies in the local market after popping in to see Masaccio's frescoes at the Brancacci Chapel. Heaven!!

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              The apartment has a lovely cross breeze, and you can hear the sounds of the church bells throughout. The sense of spaciousness and light is refreshing. The benefit of renovating an apartment in Italy is that you can choose from the best materials while maintaining the original features. I love the typical wood-beamed ceiling and the terracotta floors.
