Private room in artist's home-studio & rooftop terrace between Duomo and Uffizi. Historical ancient house. Newly repainted guest's room with wonderful bed and memory foam mattress. Rotating painting exhibition. Enjoy life in my home-studio!
I'm a professional painter and anthropologist. My apartment is a unique, historic flat on the rooftop full of art and colors. Enjoy my private terrace with the most breathtaking view of the city (I'm not exaggerating, you'll see).
I hope you enjoy the fact that Airbnb is about going in the privacy and sacredness of a person's home, not a hotel, so as a...humaine human and not a generic "service provider" know that I will ALWAYS be there to help! Just ask explicitly what you need to improve your stay.
My home is my art studio, and it has all the interesting and quirky aspects of a historical home in Florence with original pavements, windows and even a 1400s wood-burning oven in the kitchen with hand-painted blue tiles. I hope you enjoy its quirkyness like I do!!
I like to move paintings around, so in your room you will always have fresh art :) sometimes a few large canvases, other times many smaller pieces. I hope you enjoy the rotating exhibition!
I love to get inspired by the beauty of Italian life and, when I'm not exhibiting my artwork around the world, I love to share my inspiration and techniques in private lessons that enable anyone, even in a single meeting, to access their creativity and experience happiness through color, line and music. A couple hours painting on my rooftop terrace can change one's life, as it has changed mine! :-)
You can spend time there sipping wine and enjoying the view of every single monumental building in Florence (Duomo, Sinagogue, Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Pitti, Santa Maria Novella & San Lorenzo churches) and all the gorgeous hills that surround my beautiful city.
Please consider that I shuffle around artwork constantly because I often exhibit my work, so the photos you see on the website are only indicative of the art you'll find in the room. I guarantee it will always be welcoming and nice :)
Please consider that the bathroom has a small sit-in tub, normal in Italy, perhaps small and strange for other countries.

I love Airbnb because it's about relationships. Communication and mutual trust are key: I hope that my guests appreciate the fact that Airbnb is about going in the privacy and sacredness of a person's home, not a professional hotel, and therefore tell me directly, in the moment, what I can do to help and make their stay nice - knowing that as a humain human and not a generic "service provider" I will ALWAYS be there to help.
