Located in via delle Coppelle, in the heart of Rome and just a stone’s throw from piazza Navona and the Pantheon, Palazzo delle Pietre is a fifteenth century building converted into a residence by the Mazzi family.
Travertine portals and ancient friezes inlaid in the walls create a close relationship with the ancient stone items, donated by Carlo Mazzi, Prada’s President, from his private collection, which adorn the Palazzo rooms and tell the history of a family and its passions.
Eight apartments are available to guests, different from one anotherin furnishing, but united by a conservative restorationenriched by fragments of ancient sculptures, which witness the history of Rome. The richness and originalityof the materials used for the renovation are of great impact, including rare marble and antique parquets, enhanced by functional furnishings and accessoriesbearing the signature of both specialised artisans and prestigious design brandssuch as Artemide, De Padova, Alivar and Richard Ginori, retaining the atmosphere of a warm family home.
It was the desire to offer the typical warmth and comfort of an Italian “family home” that prompted the Mazzi family to carry out this project, giving life to something unique, an unrepeatable experience where history, tradition, art and culture merge together.
