BENEDETTA’S PENTHOUSE AT FORUMS

My home is a fantastic flat built on top of a 1600 century building and strategicaly placed in the historic part of town just accross from the Forum. From my terrace you can see the Basilica di Massenzio, a small part of the Colosseum and the white Altare della Patria. In short a glorious view. The medieval Torre dei Conti in Largo Corrado Ricci reminds our historical stratifications.

My flat is on the third floor and has an elevator as well, a rare luxury in old historic buildings! Also to keep out the pollution of a big city like Rome, I have fans everywhere that keep the air clean and therefore conducive to people with allergies.

Finally, my building is strategic in the sense that from my flat, you can walk to most of the attractions of Rome by foot and you have all the transports need to get around town; you can even rent a Vespa! A great asset in a city that can have enormous traffic jams.

 After the time of Mussolini the building  was restored in 1992 by a young (at that time still unknown) architect specializing in renovation of historic monuments. He designed it with a sense of the past and for this reason the house is full of different levels, with the stairs designed to make the climb easier in the style of the middle age towers and it is made mainly with natural materials (walnut and chestnut wood, marble, natural stone) respecting the colors of Rome and its churches: yellow and grey. 

It’s five years that I have been living in  Marrakech and this incredible experience has given me the capacity to master  colors, colors of morocco…

So this 2018 I  renovated using other colors such putting new mauve walls in the main room and thus creating new light to my flat through new color schemes….

Due to the length of my stay in Marrakech I would like to share my home full of design and art with people that love to be in a silent and cozy ambience equipped with a cinema (where you could branch your computer), wi-fi, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, boiler and all the commodities to have a pleasant stay.

It is my hope that you will enjoy your stay in my flat and that you will respect my NO SMOKING house.  If you smoke there are some ashtrays on the terrace. It’s a NO PETS home as due to its history it is a fragile home, yet a wonderful but  harbour for the weary traveller. I hope you enjoy your stay and have a wonderful Roman holiday in a real Roman artistic home .
