Palazzo Fendi has revealed its new look, facing Via Condotti and the Piazza di Spagna. While the façade remains faithful to historic Italian architecture, the rest of this entirely renovated 17th century building has been transformed into a space dedicated to an exceptional art of refined living.
The ground floor and first level are home to the Fendi boutique. More than simply a store, the boutique offers a unique esthetic experience, exhibiting a selection of artwork in an architectural setting that epitomizes Italian luxury. In the entrance, visitors are welcomed by the Moon Baal sculpture by Swiss artist Not Vidal, reflecting the circular motif of the precious marble floor. The choice of travertine, the stone traditionally used to build classical Roman monuments, pays tribute to Italian heritage. From the Baguette Walldisplaying iconic Fendi handbags to furs transformed into decorative objects, elements of Fendi’s emblematic style punctuate the spaces dedicated to women’s and men’s ready-to-wear.

Palazzo Fendi’s second floor is occupied by a private apartment, catering to VIP clients, celebrities, and friends of the House. The décor for this private Palazzo, imagined by the design duo behind the Dimore Studio, blends vintage design pieces, contemporary furniture and objets d’art, as well unique creations commissioned by Fendi.
