Hotel Savoy is host to AWA’s Directors luncheons that bring together Florence’s women museum directors and curators. It is located on Piazza della Repubblica in the heart of Florence’s city center. The design, with its contemporary elegant style, celebrates Italian expertise inspired by local cityscape. The 14 suites have carefully chosen sculptures, artworks and photography throughout. The signature Suites, Signoria and Brunelleschi and the newly refurbished Repubblica Suite are exclusive retreats from the bustling city and are the ideal setting in which to relax and be pampered. Irene, the Florentine bistro designed by Olga Polizzi, is inspired by a 50’s retro-chic Florentine bistro. The dishes, created by Fulvio Pierangelini are inspired by the rich and traditional Tuscan cuisine made with local and seasonal raw ingredients. The meeting areas have been given a modern twist with the creation of the new Salotto, with a layout that recalls a stylish convivial sitting room. Here at AWA we are privileged to have them as partners! They are prize partners for our upcoming restoration campaign and, specialized tours are in the making for the future.
