This lovely apartment is located on the Piano Nobile of an ancient building of the XVIth century, with lift, completely restored and situated just behind the beautiful Santa Croce square. The owner of the apartment, a famous photographer and writer, has personally furnished and decorated this unique apartment with a perfect joining of modern taste and tradition with a touch of high tech design, as well as few hints from the recent past of the 50’s 60’s n 70’s, which confers to this charming apartment a «lounge», relaxing feeling, despite it’s outstanding rich character. Despite its first floor (American second floor) position, the architecture of the surrounding buildings, with their private courtyards, allows a particular lightening conditions keeping its secluded character.
