About the Property

3 Bedrooms + Sofa , 3 Baths, 6-8 Sleeps

A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY
Via del Corno was also mentioned by 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 novel came to the attention of critics and in 1954 the director Carlo Lizzani directed a movie based on the book with actors such as Marcello Mastroianni, Antonella Lualdi, Rowena Greek. The film, despite the problems of censorship, won the Special Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
