REAL ESTATE COMPLEX CONSISTING OF BUILDINGS AND LANDS (OLIVE GROVE)
The building is of great historical and monumental value, since it is a classic example of Tuscan villa with its pars dominica and pars massaricia. The complex also includes an eighteenth-century chapel and a small park.
The building, dating back to the 16th century, has typical Renaissance features. Its structure has been modified in later stages through additions and alterations, that testify to its bond with the Florentine nobility during the centuries.
In the current Town-Planning Regulations of Bagno a Ripoli (approved by City Council resolution n.41 of 21/04/2015) the area where the building stands is a farming area, but also “area for special use – areas for private services pursuant to art.41”.
The property is currently occupied without title. Please be advised that a litigation is still pending in relation to the return of the property, that had been partly given on loan to the company La Magnolia S.r.l. with agreement dated 19.12.2001. The Supreme Court of Cassation, with a recent decision dated 13/04/2021, filed 23/09/2021, has recognised the right of the Province of Forlì-Cesena to retrieve such property. The coming sentence of the Appeal Court of Florence shall now comply with the indications of the Supreme Court of Cassation.
The building is used mainly as a nursing home for the elderly, also non-self-sufficient, and as day center for the elderly, and includes a part used as civil residence. The complex develops around an inner courtyard and consists of a basement, two floors above ground, and a mezzanine.
On the ground floor there is an eighteenth-century chapel, accessible from the inner courtyard. The wall structure is made of mixed masonry of natural stone and bricks, with very thick load-bearing masonry. The slabs are made mainly of wooden beams, with real masonry vaults in correspondence of some rooms of the complex.
The spaces in the basement are destined to warehouse, storage, and cloakroom, and a wing is destined to civil residence.
On the ground floor there are hospital rooms, day care rooms, infirmary, kitchens, and dining rooms. A part of the building, to the north, is destined to civil residence.
The first floor is used mainly as rooms for the assisted elderly and includes also a dining room and a multi-purpose room.
The mezzanine, which affects only a small part of the building, houses the spaces destined to archive and some rooms that were formerly part of a civil residence, renovated in 2004.
To the south of the main complex there is a former farmhouse, consisting of a building used as civil residence and divided into two units spread over two floors (ground floor and first floor), accessible from the back court.
The complex of Villa Lambertini stands on the crest of a hill, not far from the center, between the villages of Bagno a Ripoli and Ponte Ema, in the municipality of Bagno a Ripoli (a neighboring municipality of Florence).
