We are in Rome, along Lungotevere, where the river touches the neighborhood called "Della Vittoria".
Here at one time there was a square (now lost) where military exercised with firearms (hence the name "Lungotevere delle Armi").
In this area camped Buffalo Bill with his circus on the occasion of his visit to Italy (some photographic evidence of this exceptional event, are now exhibited in the halls of the "Antico Caffè Greco" near the Spanish Steps); and in this space in 1911 was held the exhibition to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the Unification of Italy.
A neighborhood marked by history, where there are some villas whose architectural style is a mixture of Renaissance and Baroque, in the current style of the first decade of the twentieth century. Among them, in its simple elegance Villa Laetitia designed in 1911 by the roman architect Armando Brasini, one of the best authors of that "architectural season".
During the renovation of the guest house, were created a series of small apartments, by the designer Anna Fendi Venturini that was able to impress with her creativity, authentic sense of playful fun, cheerful and thoughtful way of "doing home" around her guests with extreme attention to their needs. Everything in Villa Laetitia brings joy and tranquilityin a magical silence in the green of this "carved island" in the center of Rome.
A crossroad for artists, collectors, designers and people from all over the world.
