Martino di Napoli Rampolla, soul of Numeroventi, exhibition space and guesthouse, a place where art and design are generated and breathed

Martino di Napoli Rampolla

Inside Palazzo Galli Tassi, hidden in a majestic Florence, an exhibition space and guesthouse, a place where art and design are generated and breathed. It is Numeroventi, by Martino di Napoli Rampolla.

How did this intuition begin?

As a response to some weaknesses, like the need to give a different and more meaningful sense to an empty and nostalgic space. 

The guidelines for the building’s renovation?

Oriented towards natural light, white walls, modern and Scandinavian furniture, spacious rooms.

5 places that say something about you.

The agricultural technical institute of Siena, Via dell’Erta Canina in Florence, the San Giovanni di Rapolano spas, the Crete Senesi, the masses of Lamole, where I was born, the Enoteca Fiorentina in Sant’Ambrogio and finally the district of San Frediano.

Artistic collaborations that make you particularly proud?

Urban Lab with designer Duccio Maria Gambi, the Villa Romana artist Kasia Fudakowski and her project Kartino and the annual collaboration with the members of the Advisory Board.

Upcoming events not to be missed at Numeroventi?

In mid-May, the open studio of our first artist this year, Dori Deng. Next autumn, the exhibition of Richard Stapleton, creative director of Cereal Magazine..

A dream?

To see the Lungarni used as spaces where citizens can meet and celebrate the community.

A nightmare?

The thing that really scares me is boredom. And for now we should be safe.
