How would you describe Salerno Design Apartments in a nutshell?
Salerno Design Apartments are two apartments that have been renovated and restored by my family with the philosophy of maintaining and enhancing the original space through the use of natural materials. Aside from its historical and artistic value, the building boasts a privileged position overlooking the Amalfi Coast, with views towards the sea through its large windows.
What is the history of the apartments?
The apartments occupy a palace that dates from around 1600 in the historic centre of Salerno, between the centuries-old Cathedral and the Garden of Minerva. Together with several other projects located around Salerno, we took particular care in renovating and restoring this property as it is related to the roots of my maternal family.
How would you describe the atmosphere and the interior design of Salerno Design Apartments?
In terms of aesthetics, we conducted a lot of research and have styled the property with a combination of contemporary furnishings and vintage pieces belonging to my mother’s family. Regarding the philosophy of the interventions, it is clear that with so much history and culture embedded in the building, we first needed to focus on discovering and enhancing all that was hidden behind the existing plasterwork and ceilings.
To you personally, what is so special about these holiday apartments?
Through carefully selected choices, we’ve left signs of the past and established a direct connection between matter and man. The elevated views across the Amalfi Coast are also particularly special — the colours, the sea and the sky.
