Donatello Suite Florence
FORNACE SUITES – Between Art & Architecture
– FLORENCE Behind a 19th-century façade at the foot of Florence’s Piazzale Michelangelo, sits a symbiosis of art and architecture – Dimora Italia’s Fornace Suites.
A launch pad to gently propel you into the heady pleasures of Florentine living amidst the sophistication and elegance so deeply rooted in the city’s heart, this bijou oasis comprises 6 sublime apartments, each taking its name from a famous master of Italian art.
Centrally located on a triangular spur and rising up like the prow of a ship between the Via Della Fornace and the Via Ser Ventura Monachi in the arty area of Oltrano, and opening its doors to reveal bespoke interiors and furnishings crafted by the internationally acclaimed architecture studio Archea Associati, these select city suites offer air-conditioning for summer comfort and cover 2 floors of the building conveniently served by lift.
Replete with the intimacy and atmosphere redolent of an exclusive boutique hotel thanks to the curated sculptures, paintings and installations in situ throughout, and encapsulating apartments Donatello, Cellini, Bernini, Canova, Michelangelo and Ghiberti – each with its dedicated listing page on this Dimora Italia website – the upscale accommodation hosts up to 18 guests if booked exclusively and comprises:
Donatello - sleeps 2 (+2)
Situated on the 1st floor and composed of:
• A softly lit main sitting/dining/kitchenette area* bedecked in chic graphite grey and brass tones with warm wooden timbers overhead and a modern buttoned double sofa bed in aquamarine
• A semi-separate bedroom area with a contemporary style double bed above which hangs ‘Illuminated Moments’ by Anne-Karin Furunes representing and radiating the aura of a primordial dawn throughout the room
• A pristine bathroom with twin wash basins and shower completes the accommodation
* Please note that the kitchenette is equipped for the preparation of light snacks only (not extensive cooking / full meals) and that the Donatello suite can be connected to the adjacent Ghiberti suite to accommodate up to 6 guests
