Villa Tolomei: white, bright, and joyful

The predominant color in Villa Tolomei, Florence, is white: perfect, complete light, embracing and merging all the colors of the spectrum.

White is the color that mixes trepidation and happiness: as German philosopher Ernst Jünger noted, “In a colorful world the element of surprise predominates; in white, instead, only a joyful and premonitory restlessness”.

Villa Tolomei – which was built during the Renaissance and has recently been renovated – is a beautiful resort that includes a swimming pool and a restaurant, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and a twenty-hectare garden.

It is a joyful and bright premonition of beauty, only a few kilometers away from Florence’s city center.
