    Default A 15th-century Renaissance palazzo in Florence, Italy

    Paolo and Gabriella Mazza spent four years and $1.5 million restoring the Renaissance theater in the Palazzo Bardi to its original state, and then turning it into a home. It is one of eight apartments in the building, which Mr. Mazza’s company bought and converted into housing.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I am not fond of it. Just the location.

    I love the space, kinda - but it's too much mishmash.

    Mid-century modern meets dominatrix lounge bar meets bathhouse murals. It's a look, I guess, though not a good one.

    Why do rich people hate being comfortable, anyway? The furniture is awful and that one sleeping area literally looks like a tomb.

    I don't know but it sure seems like they love taking a warm, inviting space and turning it into a cold and dreary clinical nightmare.
