A history spanning a century

At the beginning of the last century, a small cluster of dwellings known as Rovezzano stood a few kilometres from the city of Florence.
The Renaissance villa of Rovezzano was built in the centre of a spacious park and was completely renovated by Baroness Fiorella Favard De L'Anglade during the second half of the 19th century.
In 1946, Countess Maria Antonietta di Frassineto created the Rovezzano Weaving Mill to continue the ancient Florentine art of handcrafted production of fine furnishing fabrics.

Rovezzano Weaving Mill

The Rovezzano Weaving Mill found its natural home in the agricultural outbuildings of Villa Favard, and the precious historical collection of textiles was housed in the luminous lemon house.
As a result, a monument to the rural architectural heritage was spared from deterioration or complete cancellation. The weaving rooms were located in the vat cellar, the warehouse and fabric finishing room in the granary, and the archive and production samples were kept in the hall of the lemon house.
Year after year, new and old drawings enriched the Rovezzano Weaving Mill archive. Museum research; the study of paintings, frescoes, prints, miniatures, and porcelain; finds of ancient tapestries; new designs by architects; and revisiting classic designs all formed the basis of the fabrics that used pure dyed “indanthren” dyed cotton (therefore unalterable), fine yarns, and, sometimes, thin, discreet gold threads as raw material.
In almost a half century of operation, a “Rovezzano style” emerged as a result of the conviction that the most exacting standards of taste and elegance would be met by antique looms.
Using antique looms, true relics of a pre-industrial civilisation, skilled, devoted workers who were in love with their craft created the everyday wonder of a fabric that was born with excruciating slowness, millimetre after millimetre, with a consistent, timeless rhythm, executing the ancient miracle of craft weaving.

The art of handcrafted fabrics

In 1995, the artist Mauro Molinari became acquainted with the handcrafted fabrics of the Rovezzano Weaving Mill almost by chance.
They inspired him to create some paintings using his own technique. One of them is still on display in the Rovezzano Holiday Home.
The “postcard” was an invitation to the exhibition, which was held throughout February 1996 in the old, vaulted cellars of the Rovezzano Weaving Mill.

The hotel is very quite with vintage furniture, vintage style with all facilities you need & nina the host is very helpful & friendly

Beautiful old estate preserved till today. Stunning features, architecture and art, makes you feel like you moved back in time to someone's home.


Good location, private parking, open pool. The whole villa is really marvelous and breakfast was very tasty. Definitely a best stay on our trip to Italy. Decor is old fashioned but upgraded where needed (bathroom for example)
