The very concept of meraviglia links seemingly distant historical periods such as the Baroque and our post-modern era in a constant and intimate exchange of allusions, quotations and implications.
A contemporary home immersed within a historical context.
It is indeed one of the most outstanding residences now dedicated to luxury accommodation in Rome. Here, everything is exclusive and custom-made to offer guests the best. The floors in Etruscan cotto were made by Fornace Sugaroni. The bedroom where the Pope once rested has a king size bed, velvet drapes, marble details and 27-foot ceilings, featuring frescoes by Francesco Allegrini representing Dido and Aeneas. The jacuzzi is decorated with a 265,000-tile mosaic by DG Mosaic, while the walk-in closet has doors covered in cashmere, silk interiors and leather hangers. Everywhere you look, high-end materials have been selected and unique details added, such as the two 18th-century fireplaces – not to mention the breathtaking view over Piazza Navona.
The apartment is finely decorated and furnished, with a Yamaha Disklavier piano, a liquor cabinet stocked with Italian spirits, and a full kitchen.
It is accessed from Via dell’Anima via a circular ramp, designed by Borromini, which Innocent X actually climbed by donkey.
A long corridor girds the entrance, winding both right and left.. At the two extremes, cleverly tucked away, are the two bedrooms with adjoining baths.
One bedroom overlooks the romantic Via dell’Anima and leads into an elegant walk-in closet; the other, the sumptuous Pope’s Room, looks directly onto Piazza Navona.
When you open the doors of the windows, which measure an astonishing four and a half meters in height, in order to access the balcony that overlooks the square, the spectacle takes your breath away: it’s easy to imagine exactly how popes, princes and noble mistresses felt standing here. From this perspective, the sublime style of the Baroque period becomes surprisingly palpable.
The two secluded rooms are linked to one another through a study, music room, library, lounge for conversing or watching TV, dining room and kitchen.
Conceived as a place to gather together and socialize, each of these spaces has been meticulously designed to help guests enjoy the intimacy of a private retreat to the fullest, and to indulge in creative idleness.
The individual spaces adjoin through open doors, unified by white and gilded stuccos, a grey terracotta floor, double-leaf doors and sumptuous frescoes; the volumes fuse, seemingly paving the way towards infinity.
