From Destruction to Salvation
During the war German troops blew up all the surroundings of Ponte Vecchio, including a part of Palazzo Barone. The Torre dei Girolami at the time one of the highest towers remaining in Florence and part of the Palazzo, collapsed.
The property has been completely renovated by international designer Ilaria Miani who radically restored all the superstructures as partitions, false ceilings, layers of paint to highlight the original structure made of bricks and pillars from the tower. From the sofa you have views from S.Stefano church through the blooming terrace, and at on the opposite you can see the tower of Palazzo Vecchio.
