About Villa Manodori
Villa Manodori Redevelopment: Preserving History and Elegance
The Villa Manodori redevelopment project marks the completion of the Venturini Baldini farm’s architectural complex renovation, which also includes Dimora Ancini and La Limonaia.
Conservation and Restoration of Original Spaces
During the villa’s restoration, the focus was on conserving the original spaces and paying special attention to the frescoes adorning the walls and ceilings. The intervention restored the rooms’ luster while maintaining the existing layout on the ground floor and first floor. The ground and first floors feature two suites, while the second floor has been redesigned to accommodate four additional guest rooms.
Harmonious Integration of Historical and Contemporary Design
The conservative restoration revived the original colors of the wooden ceilings, making them an integral part of the design choices. The existing color spectrum’s in-depth study guided the selection of interior finishes and materials. Custom-designed furniture graces all rooms, complemented by other designer furnishings and iconic lamps. This blend creates a harmonious balance between historical elements and contemporary choices.
