This month's Home & Design magazine features a special tour of Villa Firenze, the residence of Italian Ambassador to the U.S. Giulio Terzi di Sant'Agata, Antonella Cinque and their two-year-old twins, Giulio and Nina. Additionally, the accompanying article by Sharon Jaffe Dan describes how the Ambassador and his family are settling into life in the grand, Tudor-style estate.
According to the article:
"Since arriving in Washington, Ambassador Terzi has hosted a wide array of dignitaries at Villa Firenze: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, her Italian counterpart President Gianfranco Fini, Italian government ministers and members of Parliament, members of Congress, Supreme Court justices Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito and business leaders including CEOs from Fiat-Chrysler Group, Eni, Enel and Finmeccanica. Plus, journalists such as Thomas Friedman and Arnaud de Borchgrave.
'Villa Firenze is not only a symbol of our countries and a meeting of cultures, but it is also an extremely useful and appreciated facility,' says Terzi. 'We are asked by many important cultural, scientific and humanitarian organizations to give use of this place and we are very keen on making it available.'"
