The origins of the Villa go back to 1372.
Completely restored, respecting the pre-existing architectural design and the most important decorative features of the building, in its centuries of life the Villa has had the singular and unrepeatable destiny of hosting personalities such as Galileo Galilei and the great poet Ugo Foscolo.
In 1815 the Countess Spinelli degli Albizi embelished the garden with a strange metal parasol which gave the Villa its name and by which it is still known to this day.
Far from the congestion of the city traffic, yet less than ten minutes away from the railway station of S. Maria Novella and the airport, the Villa is immersed in a splendid park of over 12.000 sqm and facing one of the world's most suggestive view.Today the Villa dell'Ombrellino comprises a particular prestigious complex which is suitable for a variety of purposes as meetings, presentations exhibitions and fashion shows.
The congress centre composed by some rooms inside the Villa and an auditorium which is separate from the main Villa, offers an efficient organization and specialised services which are an integral part of the centre itself.
The spacious terraces overlooking the incomparable view of Florence are an ideal setting for open air receptions during the summer months.
A large parking inside the Villa is available.
The banqueting service is managed by DONEY RICEVIMENTI.
