The Palace of the Artists

The Palace, which houses Il Salotto di Firenze, was built in 1860, 5 years before Florence became Capital of Italy from 1865 until 1870. That Palace was proof, during the whole second half of the 1800’s, of the artistic and literary dynamism of The Macchiaioli movement which developed itself in the outskirts of Piazza della Repubblica. The young artists belonging to the movement, used to met themselves at Literary Coffees Bars (Caffè letterari) in Piazza della Repubblica. For this reason, we have decided to dedicate our rooms to these famous and worldwide known artists: I MACCHIAIOLI.

Rehabilitation did not affect the building structure of the Palace where
IL SALOTTO DI FIRENZE is. It was designed to assure an adequate number of bathrooms, bedrooms, a common area for all Our Guests and installations required by present living standards.

Junto al Duomo, y a 10 minutos andando de la estación de buses y trenes. Es un B&B de mucha calidad. Si tienes prevista la llegada despues de las 13;30 te envian las claves para entrar en el portal y en la casa y allí te esperan las llaves de tu habitación. Habitación con estilo y calefacción a tope. Tiene un pequeño comedor con nevera donde puedes coger lo que te apetezca: zumos, leches, yogures, latas, café, pastas… Todo gratis. El desayuno estupendo. Lo mejor, sin duda, es la ubicación y su buen precio

We discovered Il Salotto about 8 years ago. Can’t remember the trader but it could have been Venere. Since then we have stayed there twice. The room we were initially given was wonderful. It had a balcony looking over the street 100 metres from the Duomo. I remember standing on that balcony (maybe too small for a large sofa) and being waved at by people passing by. The room we booked three years later didn’t have the view which allowed me to shriek at the tourists but was pretty damn good.

How we restore the building

Restoration did not affect the building structure of the Palace where Il Salotto di Firenze is. It was designed to assure an adequate number of bathrooms, bedrooms, a common area for all our Guests and installations required by present living standards. In the staircase area, marble stones bricks of old were restored and laid anew, and so was also the banister in wrought iron with wooden handrail. A few ancient niches were preserved inside the suites. All flooring tiles are in precious Tuscan durmast and all pecuiar features of the building were respected. The refined finishing touches, that are all around the Palace, reflect themselves also in the majestic style selected for the bathrooms, where the flooring and the coverings in marble and ceramics, are in accordance with the style of that Age.
