WHO AM I
I LOVE TO TRAVEL AND DISCOVER THE WORLD
THROUGH THE EYES OF THOSE WHO LIVE IT.
I am someone who loves to travel and discover the world through the eyes of those who live it. This is the reason I started this adventure, to show those who desire it, my home, the traditions I love of my Florence and its countryside. I love my hills and I believe that anyone who stops for just a minute to observe them can but only fall in love.
This apartment has a story, it is one of the first built in Poggio, right next to the Medicea Villa and was commissioned in 1500 by Lorenzo The Magnificent. It looks over the ‘Mascherone’, an important statue for Poggio as it represents the will of the Medici Family to share with its people the parties and important events that went on in the Villa.
From the statue gushed rivers of wine to the people. Every year this event is commemorated at the end of the summer with Siege of the Villa, a party to live and taste the experience of events particular to that time.
Not only the Medici but also the King of Italy, Vittorio Emanuele II with his beautiful Rose, in the period of the Florence Capital, often spent time at the Villa which he used as a hunting residence.
