If this apartment was a person, it would be Monica Belluci; ageing, almost unnoticeably, with utmost grace and intoxicating Italian glamour. Located on Via Catone, the Roman apartment, reinvigorated by local firm Massimo Adario Architetto, has barely changed since it was first built in the late 1800s. The Palladian flooring is outstanding — every room exhibits a different and superb style of terrazzo — and while additional bathrooms have been added, the principal configuration has remained the same. Embodying a very current sense of opulence, largely thanks to the metallics and plush velvet materials used throughout, this apartment is an impeccable lesson in timeless charm and allure.
