In this house the young W.A.Mozart played on April 3rd 1770 during his first Italian journey, hosted by Corilla Olimpica in her famous and fascinating cultural saloon. Napoleone Bonaparte wanted a still existing marble slab at the entrance of the palace to remember her. Corilla, celebrated also by Madame De Stael in 'Corinne ou l'Italie', was appointed Court Poetess by the Granduca di Toscana and by the Zarina of Russia. She celebrated with her 'improvviso' poems most of the main Italian happenings of the XVIII century among Rome, Florence and Bologna.

There are wonderful sights on the Medici Chapels and the Church of San Lorenzo, on the north side, and on the Dome on the South side. The photographs showed are taken from the house's windows. The apartment has been restored to give a sight on the past of Florence.More

Interaction with guests
I commonly meet my guests at their arrival at the train station. If they arrive at the airport a taxi is the best way to reach rapidly the house.

About the neighbourhood
Built on the site of an Etruscan settlement, Florence, the symbol of the Renaissance, rose to economic and cultural pre-eminence under the Medici in the 15th and 16th centuries. Its 600 years of extraordinary artistic activity can be seen above all in the 13th-century cathedral (Santa Maria del Fiore), the Church of Santa Croce, the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace, the work of great masters such as Giotto, Brunelleschi, Botticelli and Michelangelo
Getting around
The house is at walking distance (400m) from the train station and from the bus station. You can reach from these all Tuscany in abbove about 2h.
