The history of Palazzo Magnani Feroni
Since the beginning of the 1400 I Del Pugliese, a well-known family of the Republican Florence, owned a house in this area, in 1428 they expanded it with the purchase of other 8 houses, which the previous owner Nicolò Serragli had already assembled in a single building.
Palazzo Magnani Feroni dates back to the 1500 and until the middle of the '700 was joined to the palace of the nearby Via de' serragli, if they can see the similarities of the facades and architectural fences between the two palaces. Originally it belonged to the noble Feroni family who owned other palaces in Florence, such as the one in Via de 'Tornabuoni which goes to make a corner with the Lungarno Acciauoli.
Over the years a noble Feroni went to marry a Magnani bringing the Palaces of Borgo San Frediano and Via de 'Serragli as a dowry, from this marriage the current name of the Palace is born.
During the period of French domination, Palazzo Magnani Feroni was leased to the Minister of France; at that time we remember the sumptuous receptions held at the Palazzo. In the following years he entered the family of the current owner as their townhouse.
The first and second floors were intended for the family home. The ground floor, in addition to the main entrance to the 5 number, had a secondary entrance to the 3 number and the coach house and horse stables at the 7 number. The cellars, divided into the two wings of the building, had different uses: those under the warehouse for wood and coal to cook and feed the fireplaces of the Palace (in fact we note on Borgo San Frediano between the numbers 7 and 5, a grate of entrance from where the coal was discharged directly into the cellars), while the cellars on the left side of the building were used for storage of wine and olive oil that came from the country properties for annual needs. The third floor was used as a warehouse, while the roof terrace was mainly lived in spring to stop and talk and take tea.
At the end of 1800 Giuseppe Salvadori moved his antiquity gallery in Via de 'Fossi to the Palazzo di Borgo San Frediano and here the most important antiquarian gallery in Europe was born.
The foresight of Giuseppe Salvatori was to understand that those who bought objects of art wanted to see them, touch them, admire them and perhaps seeing many objects could be the desire to buy more of what the customer had in mind.
Giuseppe Salvadori understood the concept of the modern days of department stores over a hundred years ago, where everything is exposed and encourages purchase. To say this about works of art may surprise, or even shock, but this was his great concept as a true trader: "the goods must be seen to be bought, and works of art more than anything else."
The Galleria Salvadori in Palazzo Magnani Feroni lived decades of maximum splendor counting among its clients all the European royal houses, the Rotschild, the Rockfeller, the Metropolitan Museum of New York and poets like D'Annunzio, of which a nice man is kept in the Palazzo exchange of letters between the poet and Giuseppe Salvatori.
After the death of Giuseppe Salvatori, the gallery passed into the hands of his son Salvino who continued his activity, but not at his father's level; times had changed and people too. In the following decades the Palazzo remained "hibernated" in all its splendor as left by Giuseppe Salvatori, until today, when, after a long and careful restoration, the first period residence in Florence was built, with 13 beautiful suites of over 100 square meters each, with halls and galleries that recall the ancient splendor, where the property has left many of the furnishings of the past to make them appreciate to the guests of the Palace, where the service from 5 luxury stars takes care of the Guest in every moment for every need and where the privacy is total as access to the Palace is allowed only for Guests.
