This is a large apartment – in the centre of town, on the grand floor of a historical building that has both monumental and architectural constraints – that for many years was rented out to university students and which was then transformed into an impressive and significant Residence of historical significance. Having to create a place to host tourists and visitors who praised history and traditional values, the project was focused on highlighting and restoring the main characteristics of the property, i.e. the floors, frescoes and plaster coatings where we reintegrating or even replaced any of the damaged or deteriorated parts. A certain amount of masonry work was needed in order to create separate individual rooms each fitted with bathrooms. As well as the architectural planning which outlined the room contours, much attention had also been given to the choice of materials, colours and furniture itself. Particular attention was also paid to the communal areas planned for the tourist reception area: the main entrance and reception hall where hosts could come and relax.
After years of intense activity, the property has gone back to being the owner’s home residence: however the rooms are still distinguished by the work, which was done when recreating the original purpose of the place.
