Villa Cora Hotel - Florence
2017, Andrea Solinas


Villa Cora is located in a centuries-old park that overlooks the Boboli Gardens, on the hills just outside the historical center of Florence, one of the the most famous XIX century florentine aristocratic residence, after many changes of ownership became Grand Hotel in the late '60. In 2010 Villa Cora has undergone a major restoration, which lasted 3 years, during which Il Bronzetto was chosen as a supplier of excellence for lighting.


It is dominated by a strong eclectic decor that provides the villa with different, sometimes even bizarre, artistic styleS, often inspired by the famous characters who stayed there such as the Japanese Emperor Hirohito, to whom the imperial suite is dedicated, to the love for roses of Princess Eugenia, wife of Napoleon III, to the Eastern world and to the fifties.


Various were the artworks commissioned to the workshop of Il Bronzetto which created wonderful lighting furnishings by reproducing chandeliers, floor lamps (175) and wall lamps based on archive images and client's projects, reaffirming the importance of maintaining consistency with the unique style of each room and suite.
