Isabella S. Castriota purchased this apartment in 1987
Why Isabella S. Castriota chose Centro Storico (Old Rome)
I acquired this property when I was still very young. A disgrace (a serious accident with my scooter when I was returning from class at the University of Rome) became a grace (the insurance finally paid and it became the first down payment). I bought this flat at an auction, without seeing it!
My son and I adore this flat and love to share it with friends and guests. Profits are invested in Sustainable Projects and Trainings in the Culture of Peace: www.communicationforpeace.org
I chose the area of Campo de´ Fiori, when it didn't have a good reputation, because I love its mix of people, flavors, styles. Rome is, for me, first of all historic Rome.
I don't live in Rome all year round now and I like to share, to allow other people to feel like a Roman in the centre of Rome.
Hospitality is an art, however, difficult to achieve!
My sister and I do our best to make our guests feel comfortable and at home. We treat our guests as friends, with extra care and attention.
What makes this apartment unique
Pellegrino Terrace is unique. Located in one of the most lively areas of historic Rome, Campo de ´ Fiori, on top of a fifteenth-century building decorated by Polidoro da Caravaggio.
The street, Via del Pellegrino, and Campo de' Fiori change scenery from dawn to midnight. You'll find out by yourself!
The building is one the few fifteenth-century buildings decorated with frescos on the façade. It took a long time to find out the author, Polidoro da Caravaggio, who called the beautiful composition 'L'invidia e la fortuna' (The envy and the good luck).
The flat is on the top and last floor. It includes a large terrace with views of Roman roofs and the sixteenth-century English College tower with its pleasant bell.
The property was completely restaurde and is constantly improved. It offers all the comforts necessary to contemporary life.
