The reinvention of the Four Seasons hotel

The reinvention fo the Palazzo della Gherardesca took seven years, when architects, historians and craftsmen lovingly prepared two historic Florentine palaces and the city’s largest enclosed private gardens  for the next evolution in their storied history, the new Four Seasons Hotel in Florence. Through half a millennium, successive owners and residents have made their mark with additions and improvements, with each preserving the work of their predecessors: the result in an epic journey through Florentine history.
