The characteristics of the boutique they are well highlighted by the simple fact that each room, during the works and subsequently, has been characterized with a specific personality, from the oriental room to the suite dedicated to families with children (equipped with climbing wall). However Casa Howard is a Guest House.
In the initial project by Jenifer Howard Forneris, a name already known in the world of fashion and fashion for his father, Luciano Forneris, the formula of Guest House (and not hotel) represented very well the idea of "hosting" people, as if they were friends, introducing them into their home.
The first five rooms have been opened in the capital, in via Capo le Case, near the famous Spanish Steps in the 2000, and as many in a historic building in Via Sistina 149, decorated by the hand of Thomas Ziffer. In the 2005, with the help of the Turin architect Fabrizio Cuniberto, the Florentine structure is opened, a rare jewel, with 5 star services.
