Just a few steps from Palazzo delle Pietre, Via delle Coppelle opens into the charming Piazzetta delle Coppelle where La Corte sits, a small building from the early 1900s that was completely renovated by the Mazzi family in 2022. Thanks to its tapered trapezoid shape the house, which is located between Vicolo della Vaccarella and Via degli Spagnoli, it really seems like a miniature version of New York’s renowned Flatiron Building.
La Corte’s renovation was carried out with the same attention to conservation and restoration which characterise the works carried out at the Palazzo. This process translates into elegant and refined spaces which, together with superb Made in Italy furnishings, create a stylish yet comfortable setting. In addition, thanks to the precious support of Tuscan craftsmen, blacksmiths, carvers, and carpenters, as well as Milanese upholsterer Petriccioni di Vadi, with his sophisticated fabrics for curtains and cushions, the owners were able to replicate the refined elegance of the rooms of Palazzo delle Pietre.
Carlo Mazzi has also donated part of his precious stone collection to La Corte: fragments of sculptures from the Renaissance period and Imperial Rome decorate the apartments and common areas, while some walls have been adorned with multicoloured ancient marbles from the Roman era, often from quarries that no longer exist.
