Italy / Tuscany
A truly incomparable luxury accommodation is re-born in the heart of Florence, Italy: Opera.
A residence like no other, Opera was created within the very walls where music and theater were fused nearly 500 years ago to create a new art form: opera. Remaining true to this spirit of synthesis and to the concept of rebirth that defines this city, this unique residence combines historical pedigree with contemporary design to create an unforgettable experience.
Opera is situated within an aristocratic Palazzo, a majestic structure dating from 1420 designed by Brunelleschi, one of the brightest lights of the Florentine Renaissance. Piazza Santa Croce is just steps away as is the river Arno, but it is within the Palazzo itself where history resonates in a way all its own. Opera comprises about 3,444 square feet (320 m2) distributed over its two levels and contains three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
Opera’s interior décor is a combination of the finest design and Florentine architectural details. Original 1500 scenic machinery - winches, tracks and rods - remain as they once were, affixed to the splendidly restored ceiling beams with their newly-revealed painted decorations brought forth. Iconic designers furniture by Van der Rohe, Eames, Le Corbusier, next to 17th century sofa and two Medieval terracotta statues, Castiglioni, Flos and Fontanarte light fixtures blend uniquely into a harmonious ensemble quite unlike any other residence.
An unforgettably rarefied experience awaits the most discerning guest. Let Opera transport you to Florence’s golden age: the present!
