This beautifully renovated apartment is situated in a 16th Century National Landmark Building located directly in a Charming little Piazza and facing the marvelous Spada Palace built in 1540 and modified to its present state by Francesco Borromini. Borromini created, among other things, the masterpiece of trompe-l'oeil of false perspective where the sequence of columns of decreasing height and the floor that rises create the optical illusion of a long tunnel, in the bottom of the gallery, in a sunlit garden, there is a sculpture that looks natural size, while in reality it is only 60 cm high.
The sculptural decoration of the mannerist stucco facade of the building, and the courtyard with sculptures in niches framed by garlands of flowers and fruit, and grotesque scenes of symbolic meaning in relief between the small windows of the mezzanine, make it the richest surviving façade of the Roman Cinquecento in Rome. The building houses, among other masterpieces, a colossal sculpture of Pompey the Great, to whom Giulio Cesare fell, unearthed in 1552 beneath the walls of a Roman villa.
The Piazza is located in Rome’s most elegant Renaissance quarter between the Farnese Palace, designed by Michelangelo and now home to the French Embassy and steps from the world famous Piazza Navona, the traditional open food mart of Campo de’Fiori and the Oldest Jewish Quarter in Western Europe. In addition, the apartment is just a short walk from the Historic Center’s main transport hub in Largo Argentina, with express buses to Termini and tram service directly to the Trastevere station and on-going connections to the Airport.
The area is full of shops, cafe’s, the Campo de’ Fiori open market, the Pantheon and just 5 minutes’ walk across the bridge to the lively Trastevere quarter. Well serviced, there are also a number of supermarkets, gyms and shops nearby. Truly an excellent location and an oasis of quiet and beauty from which to explore Rome's multilayered historical district.
