Description


Its fascinating history dates back to the 17th century, but it underwent several transformations until obtaining its current structure in the following century, as confirmed by Domenico Montauti's 1789 plan, one of the oldest in Arezzo.

The Bacci family, with its rich aristocratic tradition and deep involvement in Arezzo's cultural life, commissioned Piero della Francesca to paint the famous fresco cycle of the "Stories of the True Cross" at the nearby Church of San Francesco in the 15th century. Over the following centuries, they also amassed an important collection of antiquities that was displayed in this very house on Via del Saracino, as evidenced by Oreste Brizzi's 1838 art-historical guidebook. The palace was later acquired by the Beni family in the 19th century, a renowned bourgeois family from Stia in Casentino.

The palace covers 232 square meters next to a magnificent green space, unique in the historic center, overlooking the charming Piazza della Fioraia.

The structure stands out for its unique architectural details. At the entrance, you will notice the neoclassical front door from the early decades of the 19th century, which attracted the interest of the famous antiquarian Ivan Bruschi. Inside, you can admire an evocative tempera on the vault of the alcove, dating from the same period, depicting Diana, goddess of the hunt, accompanied by cupids with flares, the symbol of night and sleep.

The upper floor, originally intended for servants, retains its authenticity with a fine brick floor made entirely by hand. Here you will find a large kitchen with an ancient hearth and a large stone sink, evidence of past domestic service.

The top floor offers breathtaking views, with seven 360-degree windows overlooking enchanting vistas.

During winter mornings, under favorable conditions it is possible to admire the Apuan Alps through an open view of the Chianti hills from the Valico della Croce.

This extraordinary residence represents a unique opportunity for those who wish to own a piece of Aretine history.

Possibility of making two independent apartments.
