Savoy Hotel, Florence

Olga Polizzi – the Director of Design at Rocco Forte – styled the interior of the Savoy Hotel Florence. And she cannot fail to have been strongly influenced by the Renaissance art, innate Italian style and leading edge contemporary design that make the city one of the world’s premier destinations.

Similarly, as you walk from the streets of Florence – where every corner is a work of art in itself – into the grand reception area of the Savoy, you will realise that the ongoing visual procession of great work has followed you inside. Fashion’s footsteps are revealed in quirky images of shoes. Renaissance grandeur is echoed in classic marble and mosaic bathrooms. Italian passion is presented on a plate in the hotel’s fabled L’Incontro Restaurant.
