Officine Panerai solidified its relationship with Florence when it opened a second boutique at the Hotel Four Seasons Firenze, not far from the historical Panerai shop in the Palazzo Arcivescovile on Piazza San Giovanni. Housed in the enchanting Palazzo della Gherardesca, the hotel contains a vast collection of artwork. Frescoes, bas-reliefs, stuccowork, and walls with precious oriental silk paper form a wealth of history, art and craftsmanship that celebrate Florence’s ancient excellence, an element that has always characterised Officine Panerai and its watches. The furnishings in the Hotel Four Seasons Firenze boutique were designed by Officine Panerai to respect as much as possible the historical and artistic context in which they are found: furnishings with clean lines, and materials that set off the splendid frescoes in the area hosting the Panerai watch collection. One of the artefacts adorning the walls is a fresco showing ancient sailboats, a reminder of the profound relationship between Officine Panerai and the sea. Please contact your Four Seasons boutique (phone or e-mail) to know the opening hours.
