Property description

'La Terrazza' apartment is located in one of the oldest parts of the center of Florence, in the medieval triangle that leads from Piazza della Signoria and from the Uffizi Museum to Piazza Santa Croce, exactly one minute walk from Palazzo Vecchio and from the Bargello Museum and two minutes walk from the Uffizi.

The palace, though very old, has an elevator and the apartment, although it lies on a high first floor has a large and pleasant terrace of 30 square meters furnished with sofa and chairs and a tent for shelter from the sun in the summer .
The apartment is divided equally into common areas, consisting of a living room with two sofas and two armchairs that overlooks the terrace and has a beautiful decorated wooden ceiling; a kitchen with vaulted ceiling, fully equipped with all the conveniences of 20 meters that also overlooks and have access to the terrace, equipped with a bar and a dining table for 8 people; and a study, also with access to the terrace, with TV and DVD.

The master bedroom, very large and with a beautiful ceiling made with terracotta panels of the 16th century decorated with original gold and blu colors, has a double king bed and a bathroom en suite with a large shower and have direct access to the terrace.

The second bedroom also has a double king bed (160 x200 cm) and wood decorated ceiling as the living room and a bathroom with dual access from the living room and from the bedroom with a Jacuzzi bath tub.

The third bedroom is very spacious, in addition to the double king bed is also equipped with a private balcony of 10 square meters and a loft of 10 square meters with a sofa that converts to a comfortable double size bed (cm 195 x 140).

The apartment has a total of 130 square meters plus 30 square feet of outdoor living almost all year round.

The renovation has been completed recently, so the apartment is absolutely new and accurate in every detail.

Via del Corno was also mentioned from the famous italian writer Vasco Pratolini in 'Chronicle of Poor Lovers', his best book, where he tells stories of Florence between 1925 and 1926. The novel is almost entirely set in Via del Corno, located between the Palazzo Vecchio and Santa Croce,in the same street where the author had spent some years of his youth. The protagonists of the novel are the inhabitants, mostly working class and the author develops love affairs that involve the young people resident in the street. In the background, the scenery of Florence in the early years of Fascism, a city in the struggle for the assertion of conflicting values. In the small universe are well represented the many faces of Florentine life but also of the Italian reality.
This Pratolini's novel came to the attention of critics and in 1954 the director Carlo Lizzani directed a movie based on the book with actors as Marcello Mastroianni, Antonella Lualdi, Rowena Greek. The film, despite the problems of censorship, won the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
