ARNOLFO DI CAMBIO'S HOME (1235) FOR SALE IN SIENA, TUSCANY


The Tower of Arnolfo stands out at the top of the old city of Colle Val d’Elsa and is easily reached through the picturesque alleys of the town. The building is made up of four floors, one above each other, for a total of two bedrooms and a bathroom. The town provides all the services and the property allows visiting the most beautiful towns of Tuscany: Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Florence, Pienza and Pisa can easily be reached in less than an hour and a half.

The most convenient airports are Florence (64km; 50’) and Pisa (97km; 1h 20’) but Rome (270km; 2h 45’) and Bologna (145km; 1h 40’) are equally suitable alternatives.


DESCRIPTION OF THE TOWER


The tower (130 sqm – 1,399 sqft, up to 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom) boasts shared access and is laid over a total of four floors organized as follows:

- Second floor: entrance hall with bathroom;

- Third floor: kitchen with fireplace and dining area;

- Fourth floor: living room (potentially a second bedroom);

- Fifth floor: double bedroom.

The tower kept most of its original features intact such as masonry walls, terracotta floors and wooden beams supporting the ceilings. Inside, the walls still show the bricks underneath but they have been painted white to allow light to better diffuse through the rooms. The double bedroom, at the top of the tower, boasts a unique arched window with direct view over the town and the surrounding countryside.


ARNOLFO DI CAMBIO


Arnolfo di Cambio was born in this very tower in 1235 CE. Having studied in Nicola Pisano’s workshop, Arnolfo’s became quickly known as a multi-faceted artist, well-versed in painting and sculpting. In the second half of the 13th century, Arnolfo moved to Rome where he was commissioned several works by the popes in churches such as San Paolo Fuori le Mura, Santa Cecilia in Trastevere and San Pietro in Vaticano.

At the end of the century he came back in Tuscany, in Florence, where he mainly worked as a town planner and architect. Right here, he worked on his two masterpieces: he took care of designing the Duomo di Firenze (completed only two centuries after his death) and Palazzo della Signoria (its tower still bears his name).
