Apartment Antinori Garden villa europe

Apartment Antinori Garden

The Palazzo Aldobrandini and Apartment Antinori Garden was constructed during the first half of the Fourteenth century and precisely at a time in which Florence began to expand beyond the boundaries of the ancient roman nucleus.

The Palace was commissioned by Messer Lapo a member of the wealthy Aldobrandini family who had made their fortune in the commerce of spices. Via delle Belledonne was at that time an important road which connected the Mercato Vecchio (market square) and Via Strozzi, to the Porta del Trebbio, the city door that led out towards the north. Although the family was already very wealthy, they were still greatly tied to trade and so they chose this location which was the main commercial artery leading out of the city. With the opening of a new bridge, the Ponte Santa Trinita, with its continuation (now Via Tornabuoni), several important palaces were built.

The new road gained importance and eventually Via delle Belledonne became a secondary side street. In the Nineteenth century, the palazzo housed several painter workshops and it is known that the celebrated painter Ingres had his studio in one of the apartments. This new destination is probably the reason for which most of the flats have very large windows.

    The Palazzo Rimbotti dates back to the 14th century, at the time when Florence was beginning to expand beyond the Roman central nucleus.

    The Via Tornabuoni and the Piazza Antinori were at that time, side streets leading out towards the city exits and indeed the Church of San Michele,as San Gaetano was then nemed, was on a secondary , alley compared to Via delle Belle Donne which runs parallel.

    It was only much later, towards the mid-15th century that Via Tornabuoni and Piazza Antinori were expanded and became the place where rich Florentines bought and refurbished palaces to turn them into stately homes.

    Throughout the centuries, the palazzo was remodelled axtensively, acquiring its present day aspect around the mid 18th century.
